This spring’s first joint application period for Bachelor's and Master’s Degree studies conducted in English ended on Wednesday 24.1. at 15.00 o’clock. According to provisional results, Metropolia again attracted a large number of applicants. In total, over 3500 applications were submitted to Metropolia. The number of primary applicants for the Bachelor’s degree programmes increased by about 8% from last year.
For the first time, both the Bachelor’s as well as Master’s degree programmes taught in English were in this spring’s first joint application. Metropolia offered Bachelor’s degree programmes in Electronics, European Business Administration, Information Technology, International Business and Logistics, Nursing and Social Services. The Master’s degree programmes offered were Business Informatics (Master of Business Administration, Master of Engineering), Health Business Management (Master of Business Administration, Master of Engineering, Master of Health Care and Social Services), Industrial Management and Information Technology.
The Bachelor's degree programme in Nursing was the most popular, where the number of primary applicants per one study place had an average of 8.8. Furthermore, in European Business Administration and International Business and Logistics, the number of priority applicants per study place increased considerably compared to last year. With regard to Master's programmes, the number of primary applicants increased most with Business Informatics (Master of Business Administration) and Industrial Management. The most popular Master’s programme was Health Business Management (Master of Business Administration), with about 6.4 primary applicants per study place.
The English degree programmes attracted the applicants outside the EU / EEA countries despite the yearly tuition fees. In addition to Finland, the most applicants were from Asian and African countries, such as, inter alia, Nepal, Nigeria, Vietnam, Philippines, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
Metropolia’s academic tuition fees apply for non-EU/EEA degree students who start their studies in English-taught Bachelor's or Master's degree programmes. Metropolia has introduced a scholarship scheme for those students.
The entrance examinations for the Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees conducted in English will be held in April 2018. The student selection results will be published by 28 June 2018 at the studyinfo.fi page.
The joint application 2018 continues from 14th March to 28th March 2018 with Bachelor's and Master’s Degree studies conducted in Finnish.
Thank you to all our applicants.
