Student selection results

The student selection results of the joint application will be published by 3 June 2022 at the latest.

You will be sent an e-mail if you are offered a study place. You then have time until 15 July 2022 at 3:00 pm (Finnish time) to confirm the study place using the link included in the message or by logging in to My Studyinfo -service with online banking credentials, mobile certificate or an electronic ID card.

Please notice that once you confirm the study place you cannot anymore accept any other study places leading to a higher education degree in Finland if the studies begin in the same academic term. The one-study-place-per-term-provision applies to higher education regardless of how the studies are provided. For example, if you have already accepted a study place offered to you in some direct application, you cannot then anymore accept a study place from the joint application if the study programme begins in the same academic term.

Appeals

If you believe there has been a mistake in the student selection and the admission criteria have not been applied correctly, you can make a written request for rectification within 14 days after the student selection results have been published.

The request for rectification must be addressed to the Examination Board of Häme University of Applied Sciences and sent to HAMK, PO Box 230, 13101 Hämeenlinna, Finland within 14 days after the student selection results have been published.

TRANSFER STUDENTS

Transfer within HAMK

If you are a student of HAMK and you would like to transfer your right to study to some other degree programme, please contact the Study Counsellor of the degree programme. Transferring from one degree programme to another is in general possible already during the first semester.

Students transferring from other Finnish university

If you want to have a transfer to HAMK you must have a valid right to study at a Finnish university. It is possible to apply for a transfer to the same or corresponding degree programme.

A university student that has the right to study for both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees can apply for a transfer only to Bachelor’s degree studies. The student must apply to Master’s degree studies through the normal admission procedures.

If a student has several rights to study he/she must choose which right to study he/she wants to transfer.

Eligibility

  • You have enough right to study periods left, so that you are able to complete your degree within the right to study periods.
  • The right to study has started when you have enrolled as present for the first time.
  • You have been enrolled as present student for at least one year at the initial university. A Master’s degree student can transfer already after studying for one semester. Transferring to Master’s degree studies whose extent is 60 cr (Master’s degree studies in the field of Technology and Natural resources) is possible only after the first semester.
  • If you are a Bachelor’s degree student, you should have completed at least 45 credits / academic year.
    • If you have been enrolled as present for three semesters you should have completed at least 67.5 credits (90 credits during four semesters etc.)
  • Master’s degree student must have proof of progress in studies and studies must be applicable to the degree and also the eligibility for the degree programme in question (education and work experience).
  • Credit transfers from previous studies or degrees are not counted as records.
  • If you are applying for a transfer to studies conducted in other language than your current studies you can apply only before the beginning of the second year.

Selection criteria

The applicability of your previous studies to the degree programme of HAMK has an effect on your selection.
The resources of the degree programme (the size of the study group, the amount of students in the degree programme), the reasons of application and the interview also have an effect on the decision.

Applying and application period

Application is at Studyinfo.fi (the name of the application: Transfer application, Häme UAS). The information on degree programmes available in the transfer application will be published at least two weeks before the application period starts. You can fill in the application during the application period.

Application period

2-16 May 3:00 pm (studies starting in autumn
1-15 November 3:00 pm (studies starting in spring)

Appendices

  • up-to-date transcript of records and certificates for partial completions of courses
  • course descriptions of completed courses
  • study certificate

Please upload the appendices to your application at Studyinfo.fi or send them to the Admission Services of HAMK by 26 May for the transfer application in spring and by 25 November for the transfer application in autumn. If you do not submit the required attachments by the given time you will be defined as not eligible and you cannot be admitted to HAMK in the transfer application.

Student selection results of the transfer application

The results will be published at the latest on:

30 June (studies starting in autumn)

HAMK tähtää hiilineutraaliksi korkeakouluksi vuoteen 2030 mennessä. 🤩 Jotta tavoite ei ole ihan sanahelinää, biotalouden tieto- ja viestintätekniikan opiskelijat lyöttäytyivät tänään yhteen HAMKin kestävän kehityksen opiskelijoiden ja Oulun seudun lukiolaisten kanssa. 💡⁣

Yhteisen innovoinnin tuloksena opiskelijat esittelevät huomenna ideat koulujen ilmastolaskurista, jolla asiat voidaan muuttaa teoriatasolta konkretiaksi. Innovaatiopäivien ideoiden työstö jatkuu aina ensi kevääseen asti demovaiheeseen. Can't wait!⁣

Yhteistyössä mukana:⁣

⭐Viimeinen viikonloppu⭐ aikaa liittyä HAMKilaiseksi ja aloittaa opinnot jo tänä syksynä! Polkuopintojen ilmoittautuminen auki sunnuntaihin 8.8. asti. 👍⁣

Ilmoittautumalla polkuopintoihin voit aloittaa opinnot heti ja päästä AMK- ja YAMK-opiskelijaksi ilman valintakoetta. Polkuvaihtoehto on tarjolla sekä päiväopiskelijaksi että monimuotoon.⁣

Polkujen kautta tarjolla esimerkiksi:⁣
👉 Konetekniikan insinöörin päiväopinnot⁣
👉 Biotalouden tieto- ja viestintätekniikan insinöörin päiväopinnot⁣
👉 Tulevaisuuden liikennejärjestelmien YAMK-opinnot⁣
👉 Ensimmäistä kertaa järjestettävät Sustainable Technologies YAMK-opinnot⁣

Napauta bion linkistä lisätietoja ja ilmoittautumislomakkeelle.⁣

Nähdään lukuvuoden alussa!⁣

Biotalouden tieto- ja viestintätekniikan opiskelijat haastettiin auttamaan kasvatuskontin kasvuolosuhteiden hallinnassa.⁣

Käytännön projekti sisälsi muun muassa data-analytiikkaa, 3D-mallinnusta ja liikkuvan ilmanottoaukon testaamista ja automatisointia.⁣

Kuvan Aleksi Heinilän mukaan "parasta oli päästä työskentelemään osana isompaa kokonaisuutta mielenkiintoisessa projektissa loistavan tiimin voimin".⁣

Lue ja katso bion blogista, miten haasteen taklaaminen sujui ja miltä avuksi luotu ilmanvaihdon prototyyppi näyttää liikkeessä!⁣

Jos ala kiinnostaa, HAMKin kesähaussa ehdit vielä hakea mukaan syksyllä alkaviin opintoihin. Kesähaku auki keskiviikkoon 4.8. klo 15.00 asti. Hakulinkki biossa!⁣

Shoe Designer Ville Siipola opetti meille tänään, miten tehdään täydellinen tuote! Menestyksen salaisuus on prototypointi & iterointi ‼️

Esimerkkinä Ville esitteli omia low, medium ja high fidelity prototyyppejään. 🤩

Hmm.. mitäs Villellä onkaan itsellään jalassa..? 🤔

Ykkösten videotuotantoprojektit ovat kuvausvaiheessa - teemana tulevaisuuden ruoantuotanto. Tiimit levittäytyvät Forssan kampukselle ja studioomme. 🎥 Tämä on kyllä hauskimpia tehtäviä - lehtorikin saa nauraa vedet silmissä ideoille 😂

Video production projects of the first year students are in the video recording phase - the theme is food production in the future. Teams will spread to the Forssa campus and our studio. 🎥 This is one of the funniest assignments - even the lecturer has also laughed tears in her eyes for ideas 😂

Älyä logistiikkaan! Tänään olimme Stera Technologies Oy:n Tammelan tehtaalla keräämällä aineistoa havainnoiden ja haastatellen sisä- ja ulkologistiikan kehittämistehtäviimme, joissa tarkastelemme materiaalivirtaa, trukkiliikennettä ja kuljetuksia.

Tätä projektia teemme osana kolmannen vuoden Älykäs logistiikka -opintomoduulia ja tulokset on esittelyssä 8.12.2021. Ehkäpä HAMK Smart -tutkimusyksikkö ottaa koppia jatkokehittämisestä meidän jälkeen... ✌

PROTOTYPING ‼️ Design Sprint viikko on siinä asennossa, että tänään rakennettiin prototyypit ja huomenna niiden avulla testaamme kehitettyjä ratkaisuja käyttäjillä.

Kuvassa jäteasema odottaa asiakkaita testaamaan palvelukokemusta, testauksessa myös jäteaseman asiakkaille on valmistettu mobiilisovelluksen prototyyppi 🤩

Huomenna nämä testataan, paketoidaan palaute ja viikon opit ✌
