JOOPAS applicants from other universities should fill in the JOOPAS application carefully, indicating all equivalent information that is demanded from ARTS students - see the text above.
Application guidelines for others (outside of Finland)
Please note, if you plan to apply outside of Finland: in case that your university has an exhange agreement with our university, application process is quite easy. But if we don't have the agreement, your studies here cost money (the fee is about 10 e/cr). You might also have visa problems, which we don't wish for, because it's very important that you can start your studies here in time.
Contact your own university international affairs office for finding out do you have an agreement with us, and then proceed according to their guidance. If this is not the case, your alternative is non-degree studies. More information and the form from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Non-degree studies application time 15.4.-15.5.2013
