Bachelor's Entrance Examinations in Spring 2021


See below the Bachelor's degree programmes offered by LAB University of Applied Sciences during the Joint Application to Higher Education, Spring 2021. 

More detailed selection criteria for each degree programme as well as entrance examination information can be found by clicking on the name of the degree programme. These details can be found on the 'Application process' tab.

Admission is based on entrance examinations or SAT score.

Entrance examination Cooperation

Universities of applied sciences cooperate with each other in terms of entrance examinations. In practice this means that if you apply to two or more degree programmes that cooperate with each other you only need to take one entrance examination.  Applicants will be invited to take the entrance examination by the University of Applied Sciences whose degree programme is the highest option in a cooperating group in the application. The points obtained in the entrance examination of each co-operating group are transferred in Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) only between the UAS's that co-operate in it.

It is possible for an applicant to participate in the entrance examinations in several entrance examination groups or, at his or her own choice, only in one of them. If an applicant participates in two or three different exams, then he or she will be considered in those different selection method queues. Universities of Applied Sciences are rarely involved in all entrance examination groups, so applicants should figure out  the cooperation before submitting the application. Only one application can be submitted.
 

The entrance examination cooperation can be found here.

It is not necessary to participate in more than one exam, but by participating in two exams an applicant will be able to be selected from two different selection queues. Check out the selection methods by clicking on the boxes below.
 

No previous exams that we could provide as examples.
 

SAT TEST

All applicants  will be invited to take an entrance examination(s). As an alternative to the entrance examination you can take a SAT test. An applicant can take both the entrance examination(s) and provide the SAT test result.

Bachelor of Culture and Arts,Industrial Design, full-time studies, Lahti
Bachelor of Culture and Arts, Packaging and Brand Design, full-time studies, Lahti
Bachelor of Health Care, Paramedic, full-time studies, Lappeenranta

If a student wants to be considered in a queue where the student may be selected based on the SAT test, LAB University of Applied Sciences requires the SAT test results from the following two sections with certain minimum points:

  • Evidence-based reading and writing (min score 480)
  • Math (min score 500)

Note: Essay results are not required.

The SAT score must arrive to LAB Admission Services directly from the  test organizer, College Board.
The code for LAB University of Applied Sciences is 7191.

The Code 7191 is the previous code used by Saimaa University of Applied Sciences (Saimia), and so if the code is still found under the name Saimaa UAS at the College Board, then the code is correct. Saimia is part of the current LAB University of Applied Sciences. The SAT results previously submitted to Lahti University of Applied Sciences (LAMK) can also be found at LAB University of Applied Sciences.

The SAT test result needs to be received at LAB University of Applied Sciences by 20 April 2021
