Viestikissa - Message Cat Feedback Form

The Message Cat is a feedback form in all students’ matters and problems concerning studies and student life. You can also use the form to send feedback about any matter you think is relevant for METKA.

METKA especially hopes to gain course feedback. Students have the right to give feedback about every course one has attended. The feedback period continues for four weeks from the end of the course. The feedback is always anonymous and the writer of feedback cannot be recognized.

Students must receive course feedback and grade within four weeks of completing the course, also within a sufficient period before the resit exam. The responsible teacher is responsible that the courses are added into the course register right after publicizing the grades. If your student rights do not come into action as they should, you can inform METKA with Message Cat for example about the courses that have not permitted you to give feedback or were not graded in time. METKA will forward the information for Metropolia where the feedback is used to improve operations.
