The Bachelor's Programme in Science offers an interdisciplinary education that will enable you to work on the cutting edge of exciting basic research and application development in math, physics, chemistry and computer/data science.
Students admitted to the Bachelor’s Programme in Science have the right, after completion of the BSc degree, to continue in one of the nine MSc programmes of the Faculty of Science at the University of Helsinki.
The Bachelor's Programme in Science has two application periods. The correct application period depends on your previous education. Please note that you cannot select a preferred application period, nor can you submit an application during both application periods.
Have you completed, or will complete by summer 2021, one of the following diplomas?
If yes, you are in admission group 2 and must submit your application during the application period between 17 – 31 March 2021 (application period closes at 15.00 local Helsinki time). The admission is based on the matriculation examination or equivalent.
If not, you are in admission group 1 and must submit your application during the application period between 1 December 2020 – 15 January 2021 (application period closes at 15.00 local Helsinki time). The admission is based on the scores of SAT Subject Tests.
You cannot select the application period of your preference even though you would have two certificates. For example, holders of the Finnish matriculation examination certificate must always apply during the application period for admission group 2.
Check out the admission requirements and procedures more in detail at Studyinfo, the Finnish national application portal.
