IMPORTANT DAYS FOR STUDIES AUTUMN 2022

Arrival instructions of international students to LAB studies in Autumn 2022

LAB University of Applied Sciences is closely following the development of Covid-19 pandemic and therefore necessary changes to teaching arrangements may apply.

At the moment situation is steady and all courses will be on campus except Online-studies.


IF RESIDING IN FINLAND or YOU ARE CITIZENS OF EU-/EEA COUNTRIES

You must start your studies on-campus.

All the students having a study place in Finland may enter Finland despite of the pandemic situation.
 

WHEN YOU ARE OBLIGATED TO PAY TUITION FEE

The tuition fee (when applicable) must be fully paid

  1. Pay the tuition fee by the final DL mentioned in your certificate of admission.
  2. NOTE: Studying and getting the LAB account is not possible without having paid the tuition fee in full.
     

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE RESIDENCE PERMIT OR YOU HAVE ALREADY APPLIED FOR IT

If having been issued a residence permit, you must arrive in Finland and start your on-campus studies on time. The orientation days will be held on Thursday 25 August 2022. All students issued a residence permit may enter Finland for their studies.

If waiting for your residence permit to be issued, contact your tutor teacher, participate in orientation days online on 25 August and arrive to campus as soon as possible.

Arriving in Finland for on-campus studies is possible by September 12, 2022.  If you are not able to arrive by 12 September, the start of your studies must be accepted and confirmed by your tutor teacher. Inform your arrival details also to LAB Student services at Lab.scholarship@lab.fi. The only accepted reason for later arrival is a delay in residence permit process.

We don’t offer Online studies because of corona anymore, so most of the lectures will be arranged mainly on campus.
