Arcada uses the SAT test and proof of English language skills OR entrance exams with language tests in Finland as application methods. Arcada does therefore not organise any entrance exams abroad.

Please find out whether you meet Arcada's language requirements or if you need to submit a language certificate alongside your SAT score. Applicants to the degree programme in Nursing also need to have Swedish or Finnish language skills.

Please note that Arcada uses separate application 2019 and is therefore not a part of the joint application system in Finland.

The application is made through studyinfo.fi where you start by typing in 'Arcada' in the search field. Please read more about how to apply to Arcada.
