Admission criteria in technology bachelor's programmes in rolling admission
You need to meet with the special eligibility requirements when applying to Bachelor's programmes through Rolling admission.
You are eligible to apply through Rolling admission if
you have completed an upper secondary degree outside of Finland
you will complete an upper secondary degree outside of Finland by 31 August 2024
that gives you the eligibility for corresponding university studies in your home country.
You are not eligible to apply through Rolling admission if:
you have completed or will complete an upper secondary degree in Finland
you have completed or will complete European Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, Reifeprüfung or Deutsche Internationale Abitur (DIA)
The evaluation and the admission process is based on the educational documents for your upper secondary degree while university-level documents are not considered in the academic evaluation.
The required grades are as follows on a scale from 0% to 100%:
Arithmetic grade average: 70%
Advanced mathematics: 80% (Computational Engineering programme requires score of 90%)
Mathematics and natural sciences: 80%
There are no exact grades, scores, or a percentile to be met with as every application is evaluated individually.
In general, we wish to see good English language skills, and grades above average in advanced mathematics and science (physics or chemistry).
When applying to the Bachelor's degree programme in Software and Systems Engineering, the grade average of IT subjects is taken into consideration instead of the grades in Physics or Chemistry. If subjects such as Computer Science or Information Technology are not included in the educational documents, the evaluation will then be based on science grades.
When filling in your online application form you must upload the required documents to your application.
If failing to upload the required documents by the time of submitting your application, you will have a strict two-week deadline to supplement your application - the rule also applies to language test results.
If the required documents are not supplemented by the deadline assigned to you, your application will be discarded.
Copy of your Finnish residence permit card (if applicable)
If the degree certificate, transcript of records or curriculum are not in English, an official translation is required.
If not using your higher education certificates as a proof for your English language skills, you should not upload any higher education documents to the application.
Please see the further information under When a language test in English is not required.
The applicant needs to upload a copy for the Mathematics Curriculum for the upper secondary degree on the application form at the time of applying.

The following areas of advanced mathematics must be included in the Mathematics Curriculum for the upper secondary degree.
The applicant must have studied these areas of advanced mathematics during their upper secondary studies, and they must have obtained the necessary skills required for the LUT Bachelor's studies.

Each application and the educational documents are evaluated individually and the admission committee for the programme reserves a right to reject an application if there are notable deficiencies in the applicant's advanced mathematics skills.
About the mathematics curriculum
For us to receive a thorough understanding of your mathematical abilities, you must attach your official upper secondary mathematics curriculum to your application. The document must be an official one, meaning that it has been published by an institution, board or ministry, for example.
A curriculum contains a list of study objectives, courses and course contents; it is a study plan. A curriculum is not equivalent to the transcript of records. Please note that the curriculum must cover the complete duration of the upper secondary studies.
Applicants with a relevant degree on the upper secondary level of education are all able to apply to Bachelor's Programmes in English with a SAT test (Suite of Assesments Test).
When applying with a SAT test, there is no additional requirement for proving your proficiency in English or your advanced mathematics skills in any other way.
