University Admissions Finland Closed Down

You have reached the website of University Admissions Finland. University Admissions Finland was a centralized application processing service for several Finnish universities’ international Master’s degree programmes from 2010 to 2018. After the application round for the autumn 2018 intake, University Admissions Finland closed down and the application processing will be transferred over to each individual university for the future application rounds.

The UAF partner universities during the application round for the autumn 2018 intake were:

University of Helsinki

University of Jyväskylä

University of Lapland

University of Tampere

What does this change mean for prospective applicants?

If you have previously applied through University Admissions Finland and are planning to apply again to one of the previous UAF partner universities, do not send your application documents, such as your degree certificate and transcript of records, or your language test result, to University Admissions Finland, as they will no longer be received. Instead, make sure you follow each university’s specific instructions on how to submit your application and the supporting documents.

As each university will oversee their own application processes, please make sure you follow each university’s specific instructions when applying to one of their programmes. Should you have questions about the application process or need assistance with the applications that you have submitted, kindly contact the respective universities’ admission services for instructions.

You can search for the available study programmes offered by all Finnish universities at the national application portal Studyinfo (, where you will also find the contact information for each Finnish university’s admission services (

Thank you for your interest towards Finnish higher education, and best of luck with your applications!
