Studies leading to the Bachelor’s degree provide the student with broad overall knowledge and skills with relevant theoretical background for working as expert of the field.

A bachelor degree completed at a university of applied sciences typically consists of 180, 210 or 240 credits (3 to 4 years of full-time study) depending on the study field.

You can apply for Bachelor’s degree-level education if you have completed upper secondary education or have a vocational diploma.

Studies leading to the Bachelor’s degree provide the student with broad overall knowledge and skills with relevant theoretical background for working as expert of the field; knowledge and skills needed for following and advancing developments in the field; knowledge and skills needed for continuous learning; adequate language and communication skills; and knowledge and skills required in the field internationally.

The UAS bachelor degree comprises basic and professional studies, elective studies, a practical training period and a Bachelor’s thesis or a final project.

Bachelor’s degrees completed at universities of applied sciences are equal to other Finnish Bachelor’s degrees and give the same qualifications as them.

NATIONAL FRAMEWORK, LOCAL CURRICULA

The government decree on polytechnics (=universities of applied sciences, UAS) (352/2003 including amendments) defines the objectives, extent and overall structure of degrees completed at universities of applied sciences. The Ministry of Education and Culture confirms the degree programmes of universities of applied sciences, and within the framework of these regulations, the UASs decide on the content and structure of their degrees in more detail. The UASs also decide on their annual curricula and forms of instruction.
