Students who have earned over 55 credits

The population for the calculation are the students of the previous autumn (20 September) of whom the number of students who earned 55 or more credits during the academic year (1 August - 31 July). Students who started in the spring semester are taken into account, if they have earned 27 or more credits during the spring semester (1 January - 31 July). The calculation also takes into account the number of credits earned during the previous academic years, if the credits exceed 55 credits per academic year, or, for students who started in the spring semester, 27 credits during the first semester. This data is extracted from the Virta data warehouse annually on 20 October.
