Remember to sign the Application Form!
Collect the enclosures which the programme requires. They are listed on the front page of the Application Form. Mark down your Application Form number into every document, and also into the lower left corner of the envelope. Send the Application form with the requested application documents to the mailing address of the University Admissions Finland.
Please note that if you apply for more than one programme, you need to submit a full application file (the application form and all requested documents) for each programme you apply for.
All application documents have to be delivered by the deadline. Make sure that you know what documents are required from you and how do you attest your application documents to be valid and authentic. If you apply for more than one programme in the University, please remember to send in separate documents for each programme.
The application documentation has to be submitted together with translations in either Finnish, Swedish or English. Translations of educational documents must be 1) issued by the awarding institution or 2) officially certified copy of a translation issued by the awarding institution or 3) translated by an official translator or 4) officially certified copy of a translation made by an official translator. Please note that you have to send a legalised copy of the translated document also in its original language.
All copies of original documents must be officially certified by the awarding institution or a notary public (please note also country-specific requirements). Copies of copies will not be accepted. All copies must have the original stamp and signature on them. Please note that all pages of the copy must be stamped separately and clearly indicate:
- the signature of the certifying officer
- the stamp of the awarding institution or notary public
- a stamp stating only “Certified true copy” will not be accepted
All submitted documents will be examined for their eligibility and authenticity. In case the applicant submits forged documents, the application will be automatically rejected.
All application documents should be delivered by mail or international courier service to University Admissions Finland. Faxed or e-mailed applications are not accepted.
