Development project for cross-institutional studies (RiKe)

Objectives of the project for institutions of higher education

  • Supporting the cooperation between higher education institutions in teaching and studying by implementing a (background) system-independent national model and system for cross-institutional studies, a service path, through which personal data and study right information as well as information on registrations, offering and attainment is transferred from the student administration system of one higher education institution to another.
  • Reducing the manual tasks done by student administration.
  • Producing draft agreements: framework agreement, teaching cooperation agreement and the EXAM agreement to enable smooth cooperation in teaching.
  • Producing the instructions ‘Ristiinopiskelun ABC’ (ABC of cross-institutional studies) for the use of higher education institutions.

Objectives of the project for students

  • Creating the preconditions for students to complete their studies flexibly in different higher education institutions and
  • making EXAM electronic exam rooms possible for taking electronic exams flexibly (exam visits and joint exams).

FAQ for the eAMK cross-institutional studies pilot

What is cross-studying?

Students can complete studies in another higher education institution based on the primary study right of their own higher education institution.

What is the relationship between the eAMK and the RiKe projects?

The eAMK and RiKe projects are both development projects funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture, implemented in 2017–2020. The eAMK project develops the offering of cross-institutional studies at universities of applied sciences as well as the CampusOnline.fi portal. As for the RiKe project, it produces technical solutions for developing cross-institutional studies.

Close cooperation between the projects is important to ensure that flexible and uniform cross-institutional study models and operating methods can be created for students of higher education institutions. In fact, eAMK is one of the five student administration development pilots in the RiKe project. The eAMK cross-institutional studies pilot in the autumn of 2019 tests the functionality of the national service path for cross-institutional studies with a small, limited group of students in the field of rehabilitation and master's degree studies.

Why is the cooperation between eAMK and RiKe important?

Cross-studying results in plenty of manual work for the student administration of each higher education institution. With the current operating methods and information systems, the information does not move automatically from one higher education institution to another or to the CampusOnline.fi portal. The objective of the cooperation between eAMK and RiKe projects is to create preconditions that enable students to complete their studies flexibly in different higher education institutions and reduce the manual tasks done by student administration.
