Halt in Direct Application for 10 Degree Programmes

This direct application period has seen an overwhelming response with a substantial number of applications for our English-taught programs.

While we are delighted that HAMK continues to be a popular study option, the high number of applications poses challenges with the processing of the applications. Consequently, we inform you that we are bringing the direct application to a halt for these 10 programs on December 22nd, 2023, at 3 pm Finnish time:

Applicants whose applications have been submitted on Studyinfo before the halt will still be considered in the direct application process and will be reviewed by our admissions team.

But I really want to apply to these programmes. What can I do?

If you wish to apply to these programmes, you can do so through the Finnish National Joint Application. The Finnish National Joint Application will open in January, and all English-taught programs, including all the programmes that were brought to a halt in Direct Application, will be part of it. You still have an opportunity to be admitted through this application period.

The application period for the Joint Application is from 3rd of January to 17th of January 2024. Applications for the Joint Application should be uploaded to Studyinfo. The admission method used in the Joint Application is the International UAS exam, except for Smart and Sustainable Design, which has its own online entrance examination.

Direct application might re-open for short time during March 2024 if it seems that there are study places left.

What about other programmes in HAMK’s offering?

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding. We look forward to welcoming prospective students through the Finnish National Joint Application!
