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.

When University Lecturer Maria Kela from the Department of Teacher Education heard that asylum seekers in Helsinki cannot participate in Finnish classes as of the beginning of October, she decided to take action: "Due to the tendering process, Finnish courses are on hiatus until the end of the year. So I suggested to my students of subject didactics in Finnish as a second language that instead of coursework we could do actual work," Kela says. The students responded with enthusiasm. Together with a graphic designer and video professional working pro bono, they are developing a website which will allow anyone to teach beginner-level Finnish to asylum seekers. In addition to the Finnish-language teaching, different departments and disciplines at the University of Helsinki have made spontaneous initiatives to help asylum seekers and refugees. The 'University of Helsinki Says Welcome' event brings the University community and asylum seekers together in November and December.
