In the second joint application of the spring, one can apply to higher education study programmes taught in Finnish or Swedish.

You can apply to a maximum of six (6) study programmes in every joint application. In the first joint application, there is no need to prioritize the order of the selected study programmes when applying. Each applicant can be accepted to all study programmes for which they are eligible, based on their admission success. However, each applicant can only receive one study place for studies starting in the same semester.
