Apply for a transfer to Turku University of Applied Sciences
You can apply for a transfer to Turku University of Applied Sciences from another higher education institution. TUAS’ own degree students also apply in the transfer application, if the targeted degree or degree title changes.
The transfer application in autumn 2016 takes place on 1–15 November 2016. The study options can be found in Studyinfo (www.studyinfo.fi). As the search criteria, use the name of the degree programme you are applying to + transfer application (e.g. information technology, transfer application). The application also takes place in Studyinfo. The application form will open once the application period starts. You can fill in only one application and apply for only one study option per application period. Application fee does not concern transfer application though there is a sentence on the application form about that.

Among degree programmes conducted in English, only Bachelor of Engineering, Information and Communication technology, full-time is included in the transfer application in autumn 2016. Other degree programmes included in the transfer application are conducted in Finnish.
