Instructions for Master thesis updated 

Starting from September 1, 2023, an abstract written for the thesis will serve as the maturity test. The maturity test is written in Finnish or in Swedish, if that has been the language of the student in the secondary school education. In all other cases the maturity test is written in English.  In case that the student's school language was Finnish or Swedish and the student is writing the thesis in English, the student writes an abstract in English to the published version of the thesis and in addition an abstract in Finnish or in Swedish for the thesis advisor.  See instructions: Thesis, Master's Degree | Haaga-Helia > 3.
