International UAS Exam
All information about this common digital examination for universities of applied sciences.
You may request individual arrangements for entrance examinations on particular grounds. Individual arrangements can be granted for the International UAS Exam but not for entrance exams in other degree programmes at Xamk.
Requests concerning the International UAS Exam must be submitted to the university of applied sciences/study programme using the International UAS Exam that is first on your application form. Please check details regarding the International UAS Exam on UASinfo website.
The request for individual arrangements must be submitted:
Requests for individual arrangements sent after the deadline are processed only in acute, exceptional cases. Individual arrangements cannot be granted if the request is submitted too late, with regard to the timetable of the entrance examination, or individual arrangements are otherwise deemed impossible to arrange.
Please attach copies of attestations that support your request, e.g. medical certificate or equivalent statement on the nature of your disease or disability, or a certificate on dyslexia or learning difficulty.
If you request support measures, such as additional time, on the grounds of dyslexia, attach a statement of a trained special needs teacher, an expert psychologist, speech therapist or specialist medical doctor (e.g. child neurologist, neurologist or phoniatrician). The statement shall indicate that you need support measures for taking the exam due to dyslexia. The UAS may accept an equivalent decision made by The Finnish Matriculation Examination Board if it contains the granted support measures.
The validity of statements is assessed on a case-by-case basis depending on the persistence of disability, disease or learning difficulty. For dyslexia, only statements that have been obtained at the age of 16 or later are considered. Do not send original certificates but be prepared to present the originals at the start of your studies should you become accepted to the study programme. Information related to your health shall be kept secret (Section 24, Act on the Openness of Government Activities).
You are notified of the granted arrangements by email. The announcement on individual arrangements for the entrance exam is exam-specific and valid only in that particular entrance exam. Individual arrangements that have been granted in advance for the second phase are valid only if the applicant receives an invitation to the second phase.
After you have got the final admission results in joint application, you can request adjustment to the decision on individual arrangement as a part of student selection appeal procedure.
