How to apply?

The academic year in Finland

The academic year in Finland can be divided into two terms:

  • Autumn term (the start of the academic year; from late August/early September to mid-December approximately)
  • Spring term (from early January to the end of May).

Most degree programmes only offer admission to the autumn term intake, but there may be individual exceptions for example in some UAS Bachelor's programmes.

Where and when to submit your application

There is no one single application route or application period in Finnish higher education. The application routes and application periods depend on the level and degree course are applying to:

Bachelor's Admissions

Master's Admissions
