Rolling admission for Master's studies

In addition to regular admission to LUT Master's programmes in English, we offer you the rolling admission option.

Through rolling admission, you can apply to all Master's programmes with the exception of the Master's Programme in Biorefineries and the Master's Programme in Circular Economy.

Rolling admission is an application path for those who have completed or are close to completing their degree outside of Finland.

If you receive a place at LUT through rolling admission and you accept it within the required two weeks of the decision, you will not be able to accept a student place through regular admission. You may accept only one place at LUT during one semester.

Application period

  • The rolling admission period for studies starting in autumn 2021 is on 1 November 2020 – 31 May 2021 at 15.00 (UTC+3).

Start of studies

  • Autumn 2021
