Application Practicalities

In this section, you can find the information needed when applying to studies at Oulu University of Applied Sciences.

Finnish universities have one joint application period, which is divided into two parts. The first part is meant for English Bachelor's degree programmes that organize entrance exams also outside Finland and Finnish taught art studies.

The second part is only for Finnish taught degree programmes and for those English degree programmes that organise exams only in Finland.

The student admission follows the admission criteria decided by the UASs in the joint application system, and the order of application preference options chosen by the applicant. The admission criteria is available on the section General Admission Criteria.
