Entrance Examinations

All applicants who have demonstrated their eligibility will be invited to sit an entrance examination. Final selection is based on the result of the entrance examination. Please note that in many cases the Embassy does not grant visas for attending school entrance exams.​ Check before you send the application form, whether participation in the examination is possible.

International Business of Lahti UAS will arrange the entrance examinations abroad in Vietnam and in Russia (St. Petersburg) in case of 10 or more eligible applicants. The dates and venues abroad will be informed later.​
