Confirming a study place, studies starting in the spring term

If you need a residence permit for your studies, check your National Learner ID at Studyinfo.fi (in the same place where you accept the study place) and write it down for yourself, as you must inform it to the Finnish Immigration Services when applying for a residence permit. The residence permit application should be submitted immediately after the study place has been confirmed. More detailed instructions on the residence permit application for studies is available on the web site of the Finnish Immigration Services.

Joint Application for studies starting in spring 2024

The following instructions apply to the Autumn 2023 Joint Application for Finnish-language and English-language degree programmes, in which you apply for a degree student's study entitlement starting from the spring term of 2024.

The results of student selections will be published for certificate based student selections no later than Wednesday 18 October 2023 and for other student selections no later than Friday 24 November 2023. Acceptance from the waiting list will end on Tuesday 12 December 2023 at 3:00 pm (current local time in Finland).

Please note that the certificates are checked only for those selected as students, and student selection is conditional until the certificates used as a basis for student selection have been checked. Metropolia may withdraw the admission, if an applicant has given false information or does not deliver all the required documents by the deadline.

Confirmation of a place of study requires that all the steps described below are completed by the deadline for accepting the study place:

Application on the Basis of Metropolia's Open UAS Studies for studies starting in spring 2024

The following instructions apply to Application on the Basis of Metropolia's Open UAS Studies, in which you apply for a degree student's study entitlement starting from the spring term of 2024.

This application process is carried out as a flexible admission (i.e. “rolling admission”), which means that student selections are made as applications arrive. Metropolia strives to get the applicant a selection decision as quickly as possible, but how quickly you get a student selection decision depends on several different factors. As a result, in some cases it can take more than two months to obtain a student selection decision (for example, if the application is sent just after the start of the holiday period), but the processing time can also be considerably shorter.
