Eligibility requirements

You need to meet special eligibility requirements when applying to Bachelor's programmes through rolling admission.

You are eligible to apply to LUT's English-language Bachelor's programmes through rolling admission if you have completed or will complete an upper secondary degree outside of Finland by 31 August 2022 that gives you the eligibility for corresponding university studies in your home country.

Who is not eligible?

You are not eligible to apply via the rolling admission in the following situations:

  • you have completed your upper secondary degree in Finland, or
  • your degree is European Baccalaureate, International Baccalaureate, Reifeprüfung or Deutsche Internationale Abitur (DIA).

Required grades

The admission is based on upper secondary degree certificates. University-level certificates are not taken into consideration in the academic evaluation. For the required documents, please see Rolling Admission for Bachelor's Studies - Required documents.

The requirements for grades are as follows, on a scale of failed to excellent:

  • Arithmetic grade average good
  • Advanced mathematics grade good
  • Mathematics and natural sciences grade average good

There are no exact grades, scores, or a percentile to be met since every application is evaluated individually. In general, we wish to see good English language skills, and above average grades 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 degree certificates, the evaluation will then be based on science grades.

Advanced mathematics

The applicant needs to provide a copy of their upper secondary mathematics curriculum when applying (see more instructions at Bachelor's Rolling Admission – Required documents).

The following topics must be included in the applicant's upper secondary mathematics curriculum. 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 LUT University's Bachelor's studies.

Although each applicant and their certificates are evaluated individually, the degree programme reserves the right to reject the application if there are notable deficiencies in the applicant's advanced mathematics skills.

The required areas of advanced mathematics

  • Circular Measure
  • Coordinate Geometry
  • Differentiation
  • Functions
  • Index Numbers
  • Indices, Surd and Logarithms
  • Integration
  • Linear Law
  • Permutation and Combination
  • Probability Distributions
  • Progressions
  • Quadratic Functions
  • Solution of Triangles
  • Systems of Equations
  • Trigonometric Functions
  • Vectors

Applying with an unfinished degree

Applicants who are applying with an unfinished degree must provide individual certificates for each school year or semester of the degree up until the application date. The applicant will be assessed based on the grades in these certificates.

The admission of an applicant with an unfinished degree is conditional. The degree must be finished by 31 August 2022, and the degree certificate, and if needed, its certified translation must be submitted to LUT's Admission Services by the deadline of 6 September 2022. Applicants who fail to graduate and submit the documents above on time forfeit their right to study.
