Section 37, subsection 5 of the Finnish Universities Act (558/2009) stipulates about the eligibility for studies leading to a higher university degree as follows:
Eligible applicants for studies leading to an academic or artistic licentiate or doctoral degree
(1) a relevant Master’s degree awarded by a university;
(2) a relevant Master’s degree awarded by a university of applied sciences; or
(3) a relevant applicable study programme abroad which in the awarding country gives
eligibility for the corresponding level of higher education.
This means that you need to have a degree equivalent to a Finnish master's degree. If you're in doubt about the eligibility of your current degree, please get in touch with us.
