Individual Arrangements in the Entrance Examination

Lead paragraph

The applicant can request individual arrangements for the entrance examinations with a separate form. The applicant should describe what type of arrangements he/she is requesting and why he/she requires these arrangements in the entrance examinations. Copies of documents supporting the request should be enclosed with the request.

If you require individual arrangements in the entrance examinations to Haaga-Helia UAS due to health conditions, learning disability, or other special reason (e.g. extra time for completing the entrance examination, extra lighting, or some other technical aid in the entrance examination, or other special arrangements), fill in and submit a written request for individual arrangements in entrance examinations to the Admission Services of Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences by post (Ratapihantie 13, FI-00520 Helsinki) or via secure mail. More information about sending a secure mail to Admission Services.

If the need for individual arrangements exists already during the application period, the request for individual arrangements in the entrance examinations must be submitted to Haaga-Helia Admission Services:

  • Joint application period from 4 January to 18 January 2023 applications by 25 January 3 PM Finnish time

If the need for individual arrangements arises after the last day of the application period, but before the entrance examination, the applicant should submit the request for individual arrangements with the supporting documents without delay to the Admission Services of all the universities of applied sciences and universities to which he/she has applied and in which he/she will take part in an entrance examination. The university of applied sciences or the university can deny the applicant the requested individual arrangements if the requested arrangements are not possible to arrange due to e.g. time constraints.

Enclose with your request a copy of a doctor’s certificate or other similar document verifying the grounds for the individual arrangements. In addition, an applicant must submit a copy of his/her certificate translated into Finnish, Swedish, or English by an official (authorised) translator, if the original document is in none of these languages. The translation must be signed and stamped by the translator.

The request must include the applicant’s personal and contact details and the name(s) of the degree programme(s) in question.

If the applicant is applying for extra time to complete the entrance examination on the grounds of learning disability, the applicant should enclose a certificate issued by a psychologist acquainted with learning disabilities, a speech therapist, or a medical specialist (e.g. pediatric neurologist, neurologist or phoniatrician) with his/her request. If the applicant has participated in the matriculation examination in Finland and has a decision on individual arrangements in the matriculation examination, the applicant is requested to enclose a copy of the decision with his/her request for individual arrangements in the entrance examinations.

NB. The applicant must submit the request with the supporting documents to all universities of applied sciences and universities to which he/she has applied and in which he/she will take part in an entrance examination.

Individual arrangements are degree programme specific and valid only on the specified date of the entrance examination. The applicant will be notified of the individual arrangements available in good time before the entrance examination. Documents supporting the request for individual arrangements are confidential and approved methods of administration are applied when processing these documents.

Individual arrangements for the International UAS Exam

If due to disability, disease, dyslexia, or some other specific reason, you need individual arrangements during the entrance exam (e.g. additional time, tasks without pictures for applicants using a screen reader), you have to fill in a written request for individual arrangements. Please attach a medical certificate or other equivalent attestation on the nature of your disability or disease. The applicants’ situations are assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Submit your request for individual arrangements, with the necessary attachments, by 25 January 2023 at 15:00 Finnish time (UTC/GMT+2) to the Admissions Services of the university of applied sciences using the International UAS Exam that is first on your application form.
