If you're planning to study in Finland, it is not too early to start preparing now. Remember, studying in Finland is tuition-free. So, you need not bother yourself about school fees once you qualified.

Hello Michael,

There are two admissions in Finland. 1. Bachelor's Degree and 2. Master Degree. Bear in mind that TOEFL result is made available around 15 days after the test. Consider postage and stuff. The earlier you seat for the examination the better it is. But prepare well.

- Bachelor's Degree application period usually starts in mid-January to February yearly.

- Master Degree application period varies. Please check the routine below:

HND is not recognised for Masters in Finland and therefore not accepted. I will advise you to enroll for Bachelors.
