MDP students who deferred the start of their studies to the autumn 2022 semester

NOTE! It has been decided on 29 June 2021 that students who are unable to start their studies in the 2021-2022 academic year due to complications caused by the coronavirus pandemic may defer the start of their studies and register as absent for their first year of studies. This decision also pertains to students who have received a study place at UEF in 2020 and have already deferred the start of their studies from the 2020-2021 academic year.

These instructions pertain to the International Master’s Degree Programme students who received a study right in 2020 or 2021 but were granted a deferment of the start of their studies to the autumn 2022 semester due to complications caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

If your acceptance at the University of Eastern Finland was conditional (e.g. tuition fee, degree certificate):

  • you must meet the condition for your acceptance before your registration can be accepted.
  • Additionally, you must sign and return your Student agreement before you can register. If you have questions regarding this, please contact your programme coordinator.

The registration period for the academic year 2022-2023 starts 2 May 2022 and ends 15 September 2022. You must register as either present or absent within the registration period. Here you can find information on registering as being present or absent.
