Educa­tion Agents

Educa­tion agents are organ­i­sa­tions that provide support to our appli­cants. They help the appli­cants to choose univer­si­ties and programmes, submit appli­ca­tions and provide support on the applicant’s path. 

Karelia UAS works in close coop­er­a­tion with inter­na­tional educa­tion agents. We: 

  • support our agent part­ners with infor­ma­tion and mate­ri­als, which are needed, 
  • orga­nize online meetings, 
  • host our part­ners at our campuses when they come to Joensuu, 
  • are open to all fresh ideas. 

Using services of an educa­tion agent is volun­tary and the appli­cant can choose to use or not to use the services provided by educa­tion agents. The admis­sion process in Finland is strongly based on equal­ity among all prospec­tive students. The use of educa­tion agents will never favor prospec­tive students in terms of eligi­bil­ity crite­ria, student selec­tion processes or immi­gra­tion processes. Agents cannot guar­an­tee admis­sion. Educa­tion agents are expected to act ethi­cally and in the best inter­ests of prospec­tive students and HEIs.

The appli­ca­tion process to Finnish HEIs is free of charge for all appli­cants and it takes place at

Regard­ing the Finnish Student Resi­dence Permit, the Finnish HEIs do not cost any fees from the appli­cants and the fee should be paid to the Finnish Immi­gra­tion Service. More infor­ma­tion can be found on the Finnish Immi­gra­tion Service website.
