Oulun ammattikorkeakoulu :: Registration and personal identity code

Registration and Finnish Personal Identity Code

If your exchange studies or your traineeship at Oamk lasts longer than three months (90 days), then you must follow instructions regarding registration. In addition, you need to obtain a Finnish personal identity code (PIC) after your arrival. The PIC is required e.g. for registering your mobility and study data, and it may be of help for you when dealing with authorities and service providers.

Students from non-EU countries and equivalent (Third countries)

You should take care of registration matters and obtain your Finnish personal identity code (if you haven't received it with your residence permit or otherwise) in the first two weeks of your exchange.

 

If your residence permit already contains a Finnish personal identity code

Check, if your Finnish personal identity code is printed on the backside of your residence permit card, as you may have applied for it together with your residence permit application. The personal identity code contains your date of birth in the form DDMMYY, a punctuation mark defining the century of birth (+, -, or A), a personal identificator, and an alphanumeric checking digit. For example a personal identity code of a person who is born on the 13th of October 1952 might look like 131052-308T.

If you already have a personal identity code, you only need to inform the postal services about your temporary address. Then, please submit your arrival form via MoveON directly to the International Services as described in the section on "Arrival services" > "Check in meeting".

 

If you do not have a Finnish personal identity code

Please register yourself into the Finnish population register and obtain a Finnish personal identity code at the local Register Office. This should be done in the first two weeks of your exchange at Oamk. Registration at the local register office is free of charge.

In addition, you need to inform the postal services about your temporary address. Then, please submit your arrival form via MoveON directly to the International Services as described in the section on "Arrival services" > "Check in meeting".

Once you have obtained your Finnish personal identity code, please submit your arrival form via MoveON directly to the International Services as described in the section on "Arrival services" > "Check in meeting".
