The weighted average of numer­i­cally assessed grades must be at least 2/5.

A student who has the study right in a Finnish higher educa­tion insti­tu­tion and has been
present at least one acad­e­mic year can apply for a transfer

A student should have performed well in his/her prior studies and have enough study­ing time left so that grad­u­a­tion within the set dura­tion of studies is possible.
