University Pathway Finland (Science & Technology)

Study information

The University Pathway Finland (Science & Technology) programme consists of studies in mathematics, the Finnish language and culture, and academic skills that prepare you for university studies in Finland.

About the pathway studies

Studying in the pathway programme is part-time, and the courses stretch evenly over eight months, divided into four teaching periods (7 weeks per period). Pathway students study 5 ECTS credits in each period.

One ECTS credit equals roughly 27 hours of work for the student. The actual workload can vary depending on the student’s skill level. The estimated ECTS workload includes all the work required for the student to complete the course: independent course-related studying, classes, exercises, assignments, and other forms of instruction, as well as exams.

Some or even all of the pathway studies can be accredited to your degree in the progression degree programme.

Apart from the pathway programme, we recommend that students take English classes in their home country to study for the required English-level exam. A complete list of accepted English language certificates will be published soon.

Progression to degree studies

The progression terms are tentative until the final terms & conditions are published on mid-June, 2022.

To progress to degree studies, you are required to (in spring 2023):

  • Complete the University Pathway Finland (Science & Technology) programme.
  • Complete the admission process in the studyinfo-portal according to given instructions and deadlines.
  • Submit the required English language certificate.
  • Submit a certificate of an upper secondary degree which in the awarding country makes you eligible for higher education.

Students who complete the pathway courses at the required level and meet the other admissions criteria will get an offer from one of the progression degree programmes, but not necessarily the programme of their first choice.The progression to degree studies is not 100 % guaranteed, unless you successfully complete the pathway programme and meet the other conditions listed above.

Our team will provide pathway students with information and advice on the admissions process well before the application period begins.

The progression degree programmes are:

Once you are accepted to the Bachelor's degree programme, you automatically get the right to continue your studies in selected Master’s programmes after completing the Bachelor's degree. 

Note: If you meet the requirements, you may apply to any degree programme in Finland without completing this pathway programme. See the Studyinfo portal for more information about the degree programmes, requirements and admissions.
