There are two application periods every year. The next application periods are:
- in autumn from 1 September to 19 October 2017 by 15:00
- in spring from 1 March to 18 April 2018 by 15:00.
The dates and times are local Finnish time. If your application is successful, your study right begins either on 1 January or 1 August, depending on whether you applied in autumn or spring. It is possible to grant the study right at other times, but we require strong grounds – such as significant research funding requiring a doctoral study right – for making such an exception. Your study right application is addressed to the faculty relevant to your research.
The appendices of your application should be delivered in paper or by e-mail within the application period; more detailed guidelines about appendices can be found in the application system. The Applicant and Student Services is responsible for receiving applications and appendices.
Please note: In the application system, the easiest way to get started is by typing in the search field University of Lapland.
