When you have been offered a study place at Arcada and have decided to accept it, you have to confirm your acceptance of the study place as is instructed in the email. It is also mandatory to register for the academic year.


1. Confirm your acceptance of offered study place

Confirm your acceptance of the study place according to the instructions sent to you by email.

A student may accept only one study place leading to a higher education degree in Finland during one academic semester. This rule applies to all higher education (Bachelor's, Master's, Licentiate and Doctoral degrees). Please read more about the one study place per term provision here.

2. Register for the academic year

In order to begin your studies at Arcada you need to register for the academic year according to the instructions sent to you. A student who has been accepted to a university of applied sciences and has accepted the study place shall register annually as present or absent for the academic year. This is done on the same page as the acceptance of the study place offer.

Fee-paying students should note that you cannot register for the academic year or receive a study certificate until you have payed the tuition fee.

Registering as absent
Students can register as absent for the first academic year only with a valid reason. Please read more about registering as absent here.
