The application time for incoming exchange students ended on 15.10.2015!

SONY DSCThe University of Helsinki received once again hundreds of exchange applications from around the World in various programmes for the spring 2016! We want to thank you all warmly for applying!

If your application is approved, you will receive your acceptance letter by e-mail, sent by your host faculty. Acceptance information is usually available by the end of November latest. Before that your application is considered by your host faculty. Please try to wait patiently!

In addition to the host Faculty’s acceptance e-mail, university bilateral exchange and ISEP, AEN, MAUI and North2North exchange students (not Erasmus SMS, Nordplus/Nordlys) will receive an official, scanned acceptance certificate from the International Exchange Services. This certificate is sent directly to the student and his/her home university’s exchange coordinator, and it is needed for the residence permit application.

It is very important that you notify the faculty and also the International Exchange Services  immediately, if you need to cancel your exchange or if there is a change in your exchange time.

Accepted exchange students will receive necessary information with the acceptance letter and newsletters and we have also gathered information about how to get started on the New Students website. You will meet our staff and other new international students latest at the Welcome Fair in January 14th, 2016.

If you did not apply this time, the next application round for incoming exchange students begins in March 2016! Stay tuned on our website!
