Registering at the university as a Doctoral Student

Those admitted to pursue postgraduate studies must confirm the reception of the study right by registering as a student at the university during the registering period at the beginning of the term. By registering you receive the status of a postgraduate student in the Faculty of Social Sciences and the possibility to apply for doctoral programmes in the University of Lapland and elsewhere in Finland. If you do not register, you will lose your study place. New students must always enroll for attendance in the first term, unless they have special permission to enroll as a non-attending student. Apply for permission to enroll as a non-attending student from the faculty’s dean.

The student registers as a doctoral student of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Student Services of the university (visiting address Yliopistonkatu 8). The doctoral student must remain registered as an attending student throughout the studies.

After registration you will receive your personal ICT user account. For more practical information about that please see the Orienteering Map – Guidebook for International Degree Students.
