How to apply?

Starting with admissions for studies beginning at the earliest in the fall of 2018, applicants will begin the application process on the national Studyinfo portal  where they can search for suitable programmes and begin the application. With one application form you can apply up to six (6) study programmes, and each applicant can only fill in one application form. Please see an example of a page in Studyinfo showing a link to the application form.

After you submit your application you receive a confirmation email. This email includes a link for making changes to your application. Changes can be made until 31 January 2018.

Information concerning the documents you need for admissions is provided by the programme you are applying to and the Studyinfo portal. The list of required documents is also on the online application.

Once you have filled out the online application, required enclosures must be uploaded electronically to the application (recommended file types pdf and jpeg, max. file size 10 MB) and also sent by post to the Admissions Office of the University of Eastern Finland to the campus where the program is organized by 31st January 2018 at 15.00 (GMT+2).
