11300 students qualify for Finnish universities´ English programmes

A total of 11,300 out of 63,800 applicants qualified for English-taught study programmes and art study programmes offered in the joint application this spring, which is about 18 percent of the total applicants, said the Finnish National Agency For Education in a press release on Tuesday.

Compared to 2023, the number of applicants increased by 4 percent.

The selection in the joint application consisted of programmes offered in English by University of the Arts Helsinki programmes and in theatre arts by Tampere University.

The competition was hardest in field of culture and arts, with only 6% of applicants being accepted, as well as the field of services with an acceptance rate of 6%.

With an acceptance rate of 17%, the easiest field to gain admission to was engineering and technology.

Out of them, 50% of the students were accepted to bachelor's degree programmes, while 50% were accepted to master’s degree programmes.

The acceptance rate to universities of applied sciences (Polytechnics) was 16% and to universities 15%.

Around 23% of the accepted applicants are Finnish citizens. The second and third most common nationalities among the accepted applicants were from Bangladesh and Pakistan.

In total, 71% of the accepted applicants were from outside the EU/EEA area.

The applicants were informed of the results of the joint application last week. The offer of admission must be accepted by July 11, before 3:00 PM EEST (UTC+3).

Applicants can be admitted from a waiting list until July 30.

The higher education institutions can organize supplementary application rounds to fill study places left vacant in the joint application.

The higher education institutions independently decide if they will organize supplementary application rounds, and the programmes and instructions on how and when to apply are published on Studyinfo and the institutions’ websites once the decisions have been made.
