Where to Continue with my BSc Degree?

Running programs

New programs from 2019 September

For each master’s it is defined by the Higher Education Act what kind of studies are required from earlier studies (from BSc or from possible MSc trainings).

Depending on the earlier studies of the applicant one of the following cases will apply to her/him: 

1.    Applicant has a bachelor degree of a certain major and he/she chooses the same master’s training program (e.g. with a Mechanical Engineering BSc degree you apply for Mechanical Engineering MSc). In this case credit points can be fully recognized and the application is accepted (without prescription of pre-masters courses).   

 2.    Applicant has a bachelor degree of a certain major and he/she chooses a different master’s training program (e.g. with a Mechanical Engineering BSc degree he/she applies for Mechatronical Engineering MSc). In this case the Department responsible for the major will check his/her BSc transcript (the completed subjects), compare it with the prerequisites defined in the “Educational and Outcome Requirements” of the major, and fill out the form Decision about Credit Recognition in which the Department either accepts or refuses the application as follows:  

a. If the applicant fulfils the prerequisites defined in the “Educational and Outcome Requirements” of the major, the Department states in the Decision about credit recognition that the application is accepted and no further discipline-bringing courses should be completed.  

b. If the applicant nearly fulfils the prerequisites defined in the “Educational and Outcome Requirements” of the major, the Department states in the Decision about credit recognition that the application is accepted, the applicant may start his/her studies if he/she agrees to complete the prescribed pre-masters courses in his/her first academic year.

c. If the content of the bachelor degree of the applicant is very far from the science field of the master’s program, it can happen that the prerequisites defined in the “Educational and Outcome Requirements” of the major cannot be fulfilled not even by completing pre-masters courses. In this case the Department refuses the application.

Please find below the prerequisites defined in the “Educational and Outcome Requirements” of each major with reference to the following: 

  1. Bachelor’s degrees with full credit point recognition 
  2. How many completed credit points can be taken into account and from which fields
  3. Relation of the completed credit points and application
