Online joint application system

Applications are submitted through the online joint application system at www.studyinfo.fi.

Joint application means that you can apply up to six (6) study programmes with one application. You have to place the programmes in order of preference on the application form. This order is binding and you cannot change it after the application period has ended. You apply with the same application form, even if you apply in both application times. These 6 options may include degree programmes from one or several different institutions.

If you are accepted, you will be offered a study place highest on your order of preference list and to which you have enough points to be accepted. You will be offered just one study place even if you have enough points to be accepted to other study options too. For example, if you are accepted to your second option of preference, your lower options (3-6) are cancelled, but you can remain in the waiting list for a possible study place in your first and highest option.

Please visit Studyinfo.fi for detailed instructions on applying.

Please check also the FAQ page for further information.
