University of Applied Sciences entrance examination in exceptional circumstances
During the application period for joint applications, applicants register for the UAS entrance examination in the Studyinfo.fi service. Entrance examinations are organised throughout Finland in several locations.
Universities of applied sciences can organise entrance examinations on eight different days, which divides the number of applicants into smaller groups than usual. This enables compliance with health and safety guidelines. Universities of applied sciences decide on the number of entrance examinations they use.
The joint entrance examination is used in 22 universities of applied sciences to select students for studies leading to a bachelor's degree. The same exam can be used to apply to different universities of applied sciences and education in different fields. Universities of applied sciences have separate admission procedures for studies leading to a master's degree.
