Information on admission
The information on admission for studies beginning in autumn of 2018 will be announced by 28 June 2018 at the latest. You will receive a notification of acceptance from the university of applied sciences if you are accepted.
One study place in the joint application to higher education
You can only be admitted to the highest application preference to which you have enough points for admission. When you are offered a study place, your lower application preferences will automatically be cancelled and you cannot anymore be admitted to those.
Accepting a study place
Confirm by 10 July 2018 3:00 pm Finnish time that you accept the study place offered. If the university of applied sciences does not receive your confirmation by 10 July 2018 you will lose the study place.
If you have applied to several degree programmes, please wait until you have received all the admission results. Only confirm your study place when you are certain of the degree programme that you wish to be admitted to. However, remember that confirmations arriving after the set time will not be considered.
You can confirm the study place either with the confirmation of acceptance form sent to you with the acceptance letter or at My Studyinfo -service (please notice that you can only register to this service by using Finnish internet banking codes, Finnish electronic ID-card or mobile certificate and applicants who have none of these cannot access this service). The confirmation is binding.
Also remember to enrol for the academic year when confirming your study place.
You will receive more detailed instructions about confirming your study place in the acceptance letter.
Waiting list for reserve places
If you have been admitted to a lower preference study place and you are on the waiting list for reserve places to your higher preference(s) you have the possibility to accept the offered study place conditionally. You may then still be offered a study place from your higher preference if study places become available later. If you are offered a study place you can decide whether you accept it as it is or accept it conditionally and still want to remain on the waiting list for reserve places for some other higher preference.
You remain on the waiting list until 31 July 2018. By this date, you are either admitted to a reserve place on the waiting list, or to the study place initially offered to you.
Bring along your original certificates on the first day of your studies. The original school certificates will be checked against the copies you have submitted earlier during the first two weeks of study.
If you do not bring along the original certificates by the date given, your study place will be cancelled.
If you are not satisfied with the results of the student selection process, please contact the university of applied sciences you have applied to.
If the matter is not resolved, you may appeal in writing to the executive board of the university of applied sciences (the Board of HAMK University of Applied Sciences) within 14 days from the time you had the possibility of receiving information on student selection.
