New students

Welcome to study at Saimaa University of Applied Sciences (SAIMIA) in Lappeenranta! We believe SAIMIA is an excellent choice for your future.

The booklet “Bachelor's degree students pre-arrival handbook” below provides you with information on how to accept a study place at SAIMIA, how to start arranging your arrival in Finland (practical information on residence permits, insurances and financial arrangements) and how to start your studies in August. Please, read the booklet very carefully. In addition to that please notice the information on bringing your other than Finnish original degree certificate to SAIMIA: You are asked to bring your original degree certificate on Wednesday August 28 at 8:30 in an envelope. On the top of an envelope must be written your name and degree programme e.g. "James Smith, International Business".
