POLKU Studies at SeAMK
- POLKU Studies provide a possibility to accomplish the first-year studies before applying for a place as a degree student.
- POLKU Studies are open UAS studies. They can be acknowledged as a part of your studies after you have applied and been accepted as an actual degree student. The acknowledgement of POLKU studies will be seen to, after students have been selected.
- For applying Master-level UAS studies, you must have a suitable higher education degree.
NOTE! Accomplishing open UAS POLKU studies does not mean that a student will automatically be accepted as a degree student.
Price of POLKU Studies
The fee for a POLKU student is 300 €, which will be invoiced in one or two installments in the beginning of the semesters when the studies start.
The enrollment for POLKU Studies
