Due to the current covid-19 situation and challenges in visa applications, your first semester studies will begin online on the 1th of September. We will continue with online studies at least until the 18th of October 2020. We will monitor the situation and hopefully we are able to continue with contact lectures on the 19th of October 2020 from Rovaniemi campus in Jokiväylä 11.
We urge you to follow our schools web page for the latest updates on the covid-19 situation and Lapland UAS instructions.

Due to the current covid-19 situation and challenges in visa processes, it is also possible to study your first semester studies online until 18 October 2020. The contact lectures will be offered simultaneously in Rovaniemi, if possible.
Studying online means that your lectures will be held online according to the given timetable and Finnish time (UTC+2). You must have a proper internet connection together with the audio and video in your computer. In order to attend the online classes, you also have to have a headset microphone.
We ask you to follow our UAS’s website for the latest updates on the covid-19 situation and Lapland UAS instructions.
