Master's studies

Admission to the Bachelor’s Programme in Science gives you the right to continue in some MSc programmes at the Faculty without a separate application.

After graduation, you can pursue a Master's programme, which opens plenty of new opportunities in science-related postions both in Finland and internationally.

Students admitted to the Bachelor’s Programme in Science have the right, without a separate application, to continue in one of the nine MSc programmes of the Faculty after completion of the BSc degree. These programmes cover the full range of modern natural sciences from pure math to chemistry and are, with the exception of the specialisation lines, taught in English.

Each MSc programme has its prerequisite requirements for entrance, and the choice of the BSc study track determines which MSc programme the student will be able to continue in.

The study counsellors will aid the student during the first and second years of studies in setting up a personal curriculum that ensures entrance to the desired MSc programme. In most cases, several options can be kept open until the third year. For instance, a student choosing the physics study track will be able to continue in at least the Atmospheric Sciences, Particle Physics and Astrophysical Sciences and Materials Research programmes. Courses offered in the third year of the BSc programme serve as an introduction to these MSc programmes, and the student can make his/her choice after taking these courses.

Check out the information below to see to which master you can continue from each study track. Some MSc programmes might require some specific courses, more detailed information in the Instructions for Students.

Other master's options

If you graduate from the Bachelor's Programme in Science, there are another three programmes offered for which you don't need a separate application:

You can read more about their prerequisites in the Instructions for Students.

The Bachelor's Programme in Science also serves as grounds for applications to science-related master programmes globally.
