The provision of one admission offer per academic term

You can only accept one admission offer per academic term in Finland.

According to national provision, a student may accept only one offer of admission leading to a higher education degree in Finland during the same academic term (the academic terms are 1 August - 31 December OR 1 January - 31 July). This rule applies to all higher education, including Bachelor’s, Master’s, Licentiate and Doctoral programmes. For more information, please visit

Hence, if you have already accepted an offer of admission from another university or university of applied sciences in Finland (with studies starting between 1 August and 31 December 2020), you cannot accept your offer of admission to Hanken. If you accept your offer of admission from Hanken, you cannot accept another offer of admission in Finland with studies starting during the aforementioned time period.
