The transfer application is aimed at all students enrolled in studies leading to a Finnish higher education degree and:

  • who wish to transfer their study rights from one Finnish higher education institution to Metropolia so that the degree title remains the same or changes

    OR
  • who wish to transfer their study rights within Metropolia from one degree programme to another, so that the degree title changes.

Students transferring within Metropolia in such a way that the degree title remains the same, are not considered as "transfer students" and have their own separate application procedure available on Metropolia intranet (OMA). Please note that it is not possible to transfer from abroad.

Students applying for a transfer should note that their maximum study period or the period for which they are entitled to receive student financial aid will not be extended due to the transfer. The maximum study period is calculated from the date on which the student accepted the study place in the previous higher education institution.

Application instructions vary depending on the academic term you are applying to study:
