A previous Bachelor's degree corresponding to at least 3 year's of full time academic studies from an institution for higher education is required from all Master's degree applicants. The degree must be awarded by an internationally recognized university. Some programmes also accept degrees from a recognized university of applied sciences or polytechnic.
The degree should entitle the applicant to apply to Master's studies in the country where the degree has been awarded and it should be from the same or similar field of study as the studies the applicant is applying to.
Our programmes accept also temporary degree certificates. For more information please see Required Documents.
It is possible to apply even if you have not yet graduated by the time the application period ends. In such a case you are required to submit your latest official transcript of records. If you receive the degree certificate and the final transcript of records during the application period, it is recommended that you submit them as well.
In most cases, a conditional acceptance is possible if the applicant finishes the Bachelor's degree and submits the Bachelor's or Master's degree certificate (in original language and as translations, if applicable) by 9 August, 2024 (for September 2024 intake). Students are also conditionally accepted if their degree has been completed outside Finland and they are required to send the verified degree certificate and transcript of records to the programme coordinator by 9 August 2024. For more information about the verification of official documents please see our website.
