The maximum number of applications is considered separately in programmes in English and in Finnish - i.e. the ultimate maximum would be 4 programmes in Technology (2 in English + 2 in Finnish) and 2 in Business Administration (1 in English + 1 in Finnish).

WHEN APPLYING TO TWO PROGRAMMES IN TECHNOLOGY

You will only fill in one application form and upload all the required programme-specific documents (if applicable) for both the programmes to that same application form. The required documents are listed on your application form according to the programmes that you are applying to.

WHEN APPLYING TO ONE PROGRAMME IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND 1-2 PROGRAMMES IN TECHNOLOGY

You will fill in two separate application forms (1 for BA + 1 for Technology) and upload a full set of required documents for each programme for those application forms. The required documents are listed separately on each application form.
 

Carefully Filling in Your Application Form

If failing to present any information requested on your application form - for example, previous studies in ECTS credits as required and indicating or calculating your GPA - the missing information will not be taken into account in the selection process.
