Abstract

One of University of Oulu’s strategic goals in 2012-2015 is to promote study progress and flexibility in all areas of education. In order to achieve this, several actions were taken. One of them involves student oriented information systems; making existing systems more effective and developing new ones. Well planned educational processes reduce the number of drop-outs, shorten graduation periods, bring graduates to working life earlier therefore making careers longer, and also make it possible to start career as a researcher younger than before. Graduating from basic degree programmes faster than before, makes recruitment for postgraduate education easier.
