Direct application based on open UAS studies
If you have completed 30 credit points (ECTS) at an open UAS and will complete 60 credits by 9 August 2019, you can apply to become a degree student in our Degree Programme in Social Services based on these studies.
Apply at Studyinfo.fi from 2 May until 16 May 2019. The application closes on 16 May 2019 at 3:00pm.
You can apply if you have completed 30 credit points (ECTS) at an open UAS. The studies have to be specific to the degree programme you are applying to. You also need to have a suitable health status for the field.
You need to complete 60 credit points (ECTS) by 9 August 2019 so usually you can apply for the first time towards the end of your 2nd semester of your open UAS studies.
The required credit points can be completed at any open UAS, however they have to match our curriculum in our Degree Programme in Social Services. Credit points completed at a university or university of applied sciences will not be accepted.

If you have completed your studies at Diak’s open UAS, you do not have to submit a transcript of records. Your study progress will be verified internally.
If you have completed your studies at some other institution, you need to attach an official, stamped transcript of records to your application form by 16 May 2019, 3:00pm.
The transcript is to be attached electronically when filling the application form. You can also submit your application form first and then come back to add attachments by using the link you received in your email after submitting your application.
If the required 60 credit points (ECTS) were not completed by the end of the application period, the possible admission is conditional until you submit a transcript of records containing 60 credit points (ECTS) by 9 August 2019, 3:00 pm. This transcript of records needs to be original with a stamp and signature.
