Are you planning to apply to one of our International Master’s Programmes between 3 December 2019 and 10 January 2020?
Check out a few tips from our admission advisers about applying in order to avoid surprises and getting through the process as smooth as possible.
- In Finland, applications go through a national online application system called ‘Studyinfo’. Therefore, don’t be surprised when you are redirected through the Studyinfo service website to the correct application form.
- Each Master’s Programme has its own admission requirements. Ensure you meet them before applying. The programme-specific requirements are at ‘Studyinfo’. You find a direct link to the information on the website of the programme in question.
- You have to submit educational documents together with your application. Check out the required application enclosures and how to submit them.
- Please note that academic qualifications awarded in certain countries have special requirements. See if they apply to you by checking the list of countries with special document requirements.
- Prepare your documents in advance as it may take some time, for example, to have them translated or certified by the correct officials.
- Follow the instructions carefully as your documents must fulfil all requirements and be submitted correctly. Otherwise, your application can not be considered.
- All applicants must prove their language skills when applying either with their previous education or a standardised language test.
- If you still need to take a language test, book it now.
- The motivation letter is always included in the online application. If sent separately, it will not be taken into consideration. When writing your text, pay attention to the maximum number of characters which is mentioned in the application form.
- When applying to an International Master’s Programme, you can at the same time apply for a scholarship on the same application form. There are no separate application forms or application periods for the scholarships. Please also note that the number of scholarships is limited and only intended for excellent students from outside EU/EEA liable to pay tuition fees.
- The processing of applications and enclosures takes time. By submitting your application immediately when the application period starts, you have a better chance to still react to possible additional queries, for example, submit insufficient documents anew.
- In Finland, a deadline is a deadline. Make sure to apply before the application period closes on 10 Jan 2020 at 15:00 UTC+2. No late applications are accepted. Also the required enclosures must be provided within the given deadlines.
- Remember that all the instructions and requirements are in place to protect your rights by ensuring equal and fair treatment of all applicants.
