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 in education that begins in the same 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 if the study programme begins in the same academic term.

Only exceptions to the provision are:

  • Transfer student selections
  • the Åland University of Applied Sciences
  • the Police University College of Finland

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

The academic term (1.8.−31.12. or 1.1.−31.7) 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.
