Required documents

All the required enclosures must be sent to University Admissions Finland for processing. Please note that each application must have its own set of requested application documents. This means that you must submit as many sets of officially certified educational documents as there are programmes you are applying to; e.g. if you are applying to three programmes, you must submit three sets of requested application documents.

Application documents must reach University Admissions Finland by the given deadline. University Admissions Finland will verify your language skills and process your educational certificates including credential evaluation. You will receive an email notification when the documents have been processed.

Once the processing is completed, University Admissions Finland will forward all application documents to the individual universities. Universities will then conduct the academic evaluation of your degree and carry out the student admissions.
