Applying to Finnish UAS

Applying to programmes conducted in English at polytechnics/UAS takes place through a system of joint application। Prospective students can apply to four different degree programmes at polytechnics/UAS using the same application form. The application form can be submitted online or sent by post to the admissions office of the applicant's first choice polytechnic/UAS.


The Finnish National Board of Education, the Finnish polytechnics/universities of applied sciences and the Finnish embassies are co-operating in informing foreign applicants that it is absolutely unnecessary and not recommended to use educational consultants for making an application to Finnish polytechnics

Charging a fee for helping someone to fill in the application to Bachelor degree programmes conducted in English at Finnish polytechnics/UAS is against the very principles of the joint application. If an applicant wants help e.g. in filling the application or something else relating to the application process, the applicant is recommended to contact the polytechnic/UAS, the Finnish National Board of Education and/or the local Finnish Embassy. These are the only reliable sources of information. No local agency has been accredited as an official representative of the Finnish polytechnics and therefore this kind of agency cannot give the applicant reliable advice.

Furthermore, an applicant should always fill in the application him/herself and use his/her own contact details; this ensures that the applicant receives all important information directly from the polytechnic/UAS.

The arrangements for the entrance examinations are in all cases arranged by the polytechnics in co-operation with reliable partners such as the Finnish Embassy, and the fee charged of the applicants at this point is due to the cost generated by the use of the Embassy's premises and personnel. No other fee is charged of the applicants during the application.

When applying to finnish UAS, you need to get yourself information concerning the following;

General admission criteria
Options of preference and changing the application
Entrance examinations
Language Test

You can get this information directly from the Admissions office of the UAS offering you intended study programme in Finland.

You need to have clear, accurate and adequate information, for instance i remember a year i apply for admission and i qualified but the programme i applied for is taught in Finnish only; Imagine i had to wait another year because i lack that little information.

Kindly visit this site regularly as i post more information about studying in Finland, hope this information have assist you.

Please add comments to the blog, by following it, you can give you information, i tell you that information will go a long way by helping people.

Information is powerful.
