Master’s degrees in universities

Students working in a Department of Biosciences laboratory.

After completing a Bachelor’s degree, you can continue your studies on a Master’s level. A university Master’s degree consists of at least 120 ECTS credits and can be completed in about 2 years of full-time studies.

As a rule, students admitted to universities automatically get study rights for both the Bachelor’s and the Master’s degree. Most of the Bachelor’s degree programmes are offered in Finnish or Swedish, but there is a wide selection of Master’s degree programmes conducted in English. The separate Master’s degree programmes have separate student selections.

In order to be eligible to apply to a Master’s degree programme in a university you need to have completed a Bachelor’s level degree or corresponding studies.

Master’s degree programmes may include

  • basic, intermediate and advanced studies in major and minor subjects
  • language and communication studies
  • other studies
  • internship and
  • a final thesis (Master’s thesis).

The universities are responsible for planning the content and structure of the degrees. Furthermore, the student may plan their own study contents rather independently, as long as they include the compulsory studies and follow the overall structural guidelines.

The universities’ student services and the faculties’ own international co-ordinators offer guidance for foreign students.
