Do you want to shape the future world and understand how the universe is built up?

Our understanding of the universe is based on advances made in basic science research over approximately the last 100 years. The core scientific disciplines of math, physics, chemistry and computer science also set the basis for all modern technology. In the interdisciplinary Bachelor's programme in Science you get to work on the cutting edge of exciting basic research and application development in all of these subjects.

Study science at the University of Helsinki

The Northern European country of Finland is known for its high level of research and education. The University of Helsinki is the leading university in the country, with a strong focus on basic research and research-based education. It is regularly ranked among the top-100 universities in the world. The strongest research areas in the university include those studied at the Faculty of Science, such as atmospheric research, mathematics, data science, and materials research. The physics research at the faculty is carried out in close collaboration with the leading European big science institutions such as CERN and the European Southern Observatory.

Application process

The students are accepted to the programme via the official University enrollment system in Finland. The admission is based on either the grades of the Finnish matriculation examination, IB-, EB- , RP- or DIA-degrees or SAT math and physics or chemistry subject test results. PLEASE NOTE: You have to take the SAT tests no later than in December 2018 and the registration for the tests ends 2 November 2018 (if you have not completed or will not complete the matriculation exam/IB/EB/RP by summer 2019).
