Joint application

Admissions to vocational education and training and general upper econdary education take place though the joint application. In the joint application, the applicant fills an electronic application form, marked with five preferred study programmes.

The electronic application form is submitted at www.opintopolku.fi (in Finnish), www.studieinfo.fi (in Swedish) or www.studyinfo.fi (in English).
