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 the grades of the Finnish matriculation examination, RP- or DIA-examination administered in Finland, or IB- or EB-examination. If you do not have any of the mentioned degrees, your admission is based on SAT subject test results in mathematics 2 and either physics or chemistry. The applicants in the admission group 1 (SAT subject tests) can apply from Dec 3, 2019, to Jan 10, 2020. For others, the next application period will be on 18 March –1 April 2020.
