One study place per term provision

According to this provision, a student may accept only one study place leading to a higher education degree in Finland during one academic term. This rule applies to all higher education.

Higher education degrees included in the provision are:

  • Bachelor degrees and Master degrees awarded by Finnish universities of applied sciences.
  • Bachelor degrees and Master degrees awarded by Finnish universities
  • Licentiate and Doctoral degrees awarded by Finnish universities

The provision applies to higher education regardless of how the studies are provided. For example, if you have accepted a study place from a separate application, you cannot accept a study place from the joint application in the same term.

Only exceptions to the provision are:

  • Transfer student selections
  • the √Öland Polytechnic
  • the Police College of Finland

Furthermore, the provision cannot be applied to studies completed at foreign higher education institutions.

The academic term (from 1 August to 31 December or 1 January to 31 July) is the set framework for implementation. The provision does not prevent acceptance of a place in another degree programme during another academic term. Even if the student postpones the commencement of studies, or interrupts his/her studies, that student cannot accept another study place for a degree programme starting in the same academic term.
