The results will be announced  by 28 June 2019.
Make sure that you confirm your study place by 8 July 2019 at the latest; otherwise you will lose the study place offered to you.

The admission of a student is conditional until the UAS has checked the applicant’s school and other relevant certificates. The UAS may withdraw the admission, if the applicant has given false information.

One study place per year

You can only accept one study place at a higher education institution in Finland starting in the same academic term (1 August – 31 December or 1 January – 31 July). This rule applies to all higher education. This rule does not prevent you from accepting another study place during another academic term.

If you are not selected

If you do not receive a study place in the joint application, you will receive a letter in the beginning of July 2019 informing you of your points and the possible reserve places for the options to which you have applied. Applicants allocated to reserve places are chosen according to the level of their results, should study places become available. Find out about your possibilities by directly contacting the institutes of higher education.


An applicant not satisfied with the results of the student selection process should first contact the UAS he/she has applied to. If the matter is not resolved, the student may appeal in writing to the executive board of the UAS in question. Such an appeal must be made within 14 days from the time the applicant had the possibility of receiving information on student selection.

Registers used in the joint application

All the information related to every applicant’s application is entered into the UAS joint application register and student selection register. The National Board of Education acts as registrar. Further information on the registers can be found at
