UNIVERSITY ADMISSIONS FINLAND All graduate applications and documents to University of Helsinki must be mailed to the following address: University Admissions Finland Unioninkatu 40B FI-00170 Helsinki Finland University Admissions Finland (UAF) is a centralized application service established by Finnish universities. UAF´s task is to help applicants to go through the application process as smoothly as possible. If you have questions about the application procedure, the UAF personnel can help you via e-mail and over the telephone. For more information, visit the UAF website at http://universityadmissions.fi/. UAF does not have appointment hours for visiting clients. GENERAL INFORMATION The University of Helsinki (UH) is a research-intensive institution. This trend is also reflected in the International Master´s Programmes, taught entirely in English. These programmes provide students with skills needed in demanding professions and give a solid foundation for doctoral (PhD) studies. The prerequisite for the International Master´s Programmes or Master´s level studies in general, is a Bachelor´s degree of equivalent. The extent of the International Master´s Programmes is 120 ECTS credits. Two years of intensive full-time study is required of the student for graduation. All programmes follow the national legislation governing university education and are therefore recognized throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Quality of the programmes is ensured by an international quality assurance system. An important part of the system is the assessment of all research and education of the University of Helsinki carried out by international experts every six years. In 2016, all programmes are free of charge for all accepted students, EU and non-EU students alike. The exception to this rule is the two International Master´s Degree Programmes (Advanced Spectroscopy in Chemistry and Economy, State and Society) that have Euromaster or Erasmus Mundus status. These may have tuition fees. ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS As indicated above, you must have a Bachelor´s degree or equivalent to qualify for entry to an International Master´s Programme. However, the Bachelor´s does not have to be exactly in the same field of study as the Master´s degree you are applying for. Most International Master´s Programmes accept students with a varying background. Some IMDPs may even accept students with a degree from a university of applied sciences. Nevertheless, major parts or modules in your past studies must be relevant to the programme you are applying for. Applicants with a Bachelor's degree from a university of applied sciences should always first contact the Admissions Services (email@example.com). Some programmes may require that the applicant's degree is from a specific field. Please see the programme´s website for detailed requirements. The final assessment of your existing degree will be carried out once you have submitted your application. Detailed information regarding the types of degrees that are acceptable cannot be given in advance. However, you are able to compare the content Bachelor´s degree programme that you have completed with a similar one offered at the University of Helsinki by going through the course information on the appropriate department´s website at http://www.helsinki.fi/units/index.html. The programme/syllabus (often called a study guide) can usually be found by clicking the Studies or Courses link. You will find an overview of all classes offered in English at the Courses in English website at https://www.helsinki.fi/en/courses-in-english. In order to qualify for Master´s level studies, your grades must be fairly good. At the University Helsinki, where a grading scale from 0 to 5 is used, a student wishing to enter Master´s studies must have 3 (three) as the average performance grade in the Bachelor´s degree. In some cases, the average grade requirement may be as high as 4/5 or even higher. PENDING BACHELOR´S DEGREE Even if you are in the middle of the last year of your undergraduate university studies, you should still send in the documents that you have at the moment of application. Do not wait until you receive your final diploma or degree certificate, if it is not available within the application period. Instead, submit the documents you have and indicate in your application the anticipated university graduation date. For the majority of the programmes, the application deadline is January 27, 2016. University Admissions Finland (UAF) must receive the application form, including whatever enclosures you are able to submit. At UAF, the processing of applications will continue until the late February or early March. After this first stage of processing the application files are forwarded to the appropriate faculty. If you are planning to apply for one of the International Master´s Programmes, please note that Bachelor´s diplomas and transcripts may still be processed as late as July 15, 2016. However, this again may vary according to an individual Master's programme.

It was long assumed that only Baltic flounders reside in the Gulf of Finland (northern Baltic Sea). Now researchers have discovered that European flounders were in fact once the most abundant species there. However, they have almost completely disappeared. European flounders have been mistaken for Baltic flounders for decades. Researchers only discovered a few years ago that they are, in fact, two species. Dynamics of fish stocks can be more complex than what they seem due to mixed populations of undiscovered species. Sometimes such cryptic species can disappear before we even notice they are there.

In recent years, several movements have arisen in Europe fighting equal rights for sexual minorities by advocating the ideal of the traditional nuclear family. “Issues surrounding sexuality and gender identity have become central topics in the popular movements of democratic states”, says researcher Katja Kahlina.

The Elements of AI course, launched in May 2018, has become the most popular course in the history of the University of Helsinki. To this day, more than 150,000 people have registered for the course all across the globe. The course has been implemented by the technology company Reaktor and the University of Helsinki. Hanna Hagström from Reaktor believes that cooperation between businesses and universities will only intensify, as both have something to give to each other.
Why species such as humans and orangutans have very different looking teeth? The explanation lies in the hardest part of the mammalian body. Starting from a model that is used to simulate snowflake formation, researchers have now built a new model that instead of ice, mimics the formation of enamel matrix.
Already 150 000 people from 110 countries have completed this Elements of AI course. I have also and you could too. https://t.co/fPCRfTntKe #helsinkiuni #reaktor
Microbes in the gut and mouth could provide new perspectives on the onset of Parkinson’s disease. For example, patients with Parkinson’s disease have less bacteria of the Prevotellaceae family in their gut than control subjects. Bacteria of the Prevotellaceae family have been found to be more abundant in individuals who observe a plant-based diet.
What do 17th century witch-hunts and slander on social media have in common? ”In the 17th century, smart people descended to persecuting others just like people do today on social media. They believed things that couldn’t possibly be true. Mass hysteria led to persecution,” says historian Mirkka Lappalainen. Research makes it possible to identify recurring mechanisms, such as miscalculations to which humans have succumbed throughout the centuries. The value of academic historical research lies in the fact that educated scholars know the importance of a critical approach. #Researchmatters #Siksitiede
Archeologists have created a method to study Stone Age dietary culture and fishing without salmon bones. It is remarkable, because northern areas so far only six bones have been identified in over 100 years of archaeological exploration.
Nanomaterials may have adverse effects on our health. They have an ability to bypass physical and chemical barriers in the human body and induce a condition similar to allergic airway inflammation, proves Marit Ilves’s research. Engineered nanomaterials are used for example in light-weight sports equipment, sunscreens, food packaging and antimicrobial textiles.
Researchers have created the first-ever vaccine for honey bees and other pollinators. Since pollinators are central for providing food, the vaccine could have a tremendous impact. It could end the decline in pollinator numbers.
The goal of a technology known as mind upload is to make it possible to create functional copies of the human brain on computers. Researchers have found that people who are disgust sensitive to sexual matters often also disapprove of the technology, while Sci-Fi enthusiasts have a more positive attitude.
Children born with the help of fertility treatments have a higher risk of premature birth and low birth weight - especially if they derived from fresh embryo transfer. Surprisingly, children derived from frozen embryo transfer have subtly higher birth weight in average. So is there a difference? A research team looked for mechanisms how the in vitro fertilization can alter the embryonic growth.
Mitochondrial dysfunctions spell serious trouble. They are linked to diseases such as diabetes and cancer. Cells have ways to fight against the damages, but we do not yet understand how they do that. Thomas McWilliams's lab tries to find out just that. They have a tool which has brought them to the forefront of mitochondrial research.
Often melanomas grow and spread horizontally on the top layer of the skin before penetrating deeper into the layers of the dermis. There they can reach the lymph and blood vessels. Lymph vessels are not only a pathway, however. Researchers have uncovered a unique mechanism whereby the direct contact with lymphatic endothelial cells promotes melanoma metastasis – also called Stage IV melanoma where the cancer cells have spread through the lymph nodes to distant sites in the body, the most often affected being liver, lungs, bones and brain.
The issues with University of Helsinki service e-mails have now been fixed. All messages sent during the downtime have gotten through. It may take us longer than normal to reply to e-mails for a little while.
What is morally right? What is acceptable? Do we have to put all of our inventions into practice? Lately, an increasing number of researchers have been calling for discussion on these questions. They want a more extensive debate on the ethical issues in their field.
Should kindergarten teachers have Master's degree? Studies have found that good early education reflects on later cognitive and academic capabilities.
At the end of the first teaching period, all first-year Bachelor’s students at the University of Helsinki have something in common: knowing what it’s like to study in the new degree programmes. The number of application options in last spring’s joint application procedure went down to 63 from the previous year’s 102. For example, the four Bachelor’s programmes at the Faculty of Social Sciences contain a total of 11 disciplines. Creating such extensive combinations has been challenging for the teaching staff, but Benjamin Pitkänen, a student of the Bachelor’s Programme in Society and Change feels that their work has been successful. “So far the different topics have been well balanced. It’s also nice that the range and perspectives of the topics are broader than just one discipline could offer,” he says.
Application period to our International Master’s Programmes opens December 1, 2017. If you have any questions, come and meet our admissions advisers at the Think Corner (Yliopistonkatu 4; Mon, Tue and Thu 12 noon – 2 p.m. and Wed 2 p.m. – 4 p.m). Drop in and ask us any questions you have in mind. Our admission advisers will answer any questions regarding how to apply.
Intelligent machines are increasingly making independent choices. However, we have thought little about the morals we want them to have. This is why Helsinki Challenge finalist Michael Laakasuo and his Moralities of Intelligent Machines team wants to create a new discipline, the moral psychology of robotics.
