Studies consist of first year studies of the degree programme.
You will study full time in the degree programme´s student group. There are two (2) study places for open UAS students. The studies are conducted in English. Path studies in English require good oral and written English language skills. In Nursing Path studies, it is required to also have Finnish language skill in the level of B1. If you are not a native Finnish speaker, please send us a certificate of your Finnish skills, e.g. YKI level 3.
The enrollment will start on 2 August at 9 am and end on 4 August at 11.59 pm. If there are still study places left after the enrollment period ends, the period may be continued. The registration form can be found on the “How to apply or register” tab. Places are filled on a first-come-first-serve basis and registration is done through our online store. Payment cannot be made upon registration, but an invoice will be sent to you later, if you are accepted into the path studies. Please note that you can sign up for one path studies option.
