Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences' cooperation within the FINNIPS network makes it possible to arrange the UAS entrance examinations around the world! In 2021, however, you can take the exams online.

Entrance Examinations around the World and Online

In 2021, the FINNIPS network's entrance examinations will be arranged online instead of the face-to-face exams around the world. Check the application steps and information on the exams:

1. Find the right programme for you!

2. Check the selection criteria and methods for the programmes you are interested in.

3. Apply online at www.studyinfo.fi from 7 to 20 January 2021. The online application closes on 20 January at 3.00 pm Finnish time (GMT +2).

  • You can apply up to 6 study programmes with the same joint application form. See the list of the degree programmes that cooperate within the FINNIPS network.
  • After applying for admission according to the set procedures of the joint application (during the January application period), the applicant will be invited to the entrance examination at the beginning of February 2021.
  • The exam invitation will include all the information and instructions, as well as detailed schedules for the online exam.


4. Take the online entrance examination in February-April 2021. See below for programme-specific information on the exam contents and dates.

Co-operating Degree Programmes

According to the principles of the joint application system, applicant who has applied to 1-6 degree programmes that are included in the same field of study and accept each other's results will be invited to only one entrance examination. The result of the examination will then be accepted in all the co-operating degree programmes that the applicant has applied to. This means that in some study fields you can apply up to six different UASs/programmes by taking just one entrance exam!

Click below to download a list of the co-operating degree programmes in the January 2021 application period. The names of the exams indicate which programmes co-operate and use the same online exam. In 2021, there are joint exams in the fields of Business and Administration , Health Care and Social Services, Seafaring, Technology, and Tourism and Hospitality.

Please note that in the other study fields (and in all Master's degree programmes) the programmes have their own exam and/or an alternative selection method. At the bottom of the page you can read further information about the content and stuctures of the different exams and/or their alternative selection methods.
