The eligibility criteria in the Master's degree programme in Human-Technology Interaction consist of two parts: the University of Tampere general eligibility criteria, and programme specific eligibility criteria which specify and add information to the general criteria. Applicants must meet both in order to be considered eligible.
To be eligible to apply to a Master's degree programme at UTA, an applicant must have
Eligible to apply to the Master's degree programme in Human-Technology Interaction is an applicant who has a completed suitable university level Bachelor's degree or equivalent in Interactive Technology (HCI), Computer Science, Design, Education, Media Studies, Psychology, Sociology, or other relevant field with studies in human-computer interaction.
Applicants with an unfinished Bachelor's degree
The Bachelor's degree or equivalent must be completed well before the programme begins. If the degree is not completed by the end of the application period, an applicant can be accepted to the programme on the condition that s/he sends an officially attested copy of the degree certificate to the University by 31 July 2017. A successful applicant will, in this case, first receive a notification on conditional acceptance and later an official letter of acceptance once the attested copy of the degree certificate has reached the University.
Applicants must submit evidence on a good command of English for academic purposes. There are two ways of indicating English language proficiency: language tests and previous studies.
1. Language tests
We accept the following tests as proof of a good command of English:
Please note that the language test score must be valid throughout the application period. This means that if the language test expires even one day before the application deadline, the applicant must take a new language test. Language test results are valid for two years.
We advise all 2017 applicants needing an international language test score to book for a test date well in advance, as test dates are filling up fast in the autumn and it may take several weeks for the test result to reach University Admissions Finland.
For information on how to submit a language test result, please see //www.uta.fi/admissions/language-requirements.
2. Previous studies
If you fulfil one of the criteria below, you are exempt from submitting a language test score. Please note that you may fit into several of the categories that exempt from the language test requirement. Please choose in the application form the one you feel is most appropriate.
Please note that in addition to assessing your previous studies in terms of eligibility, we assess them also to determine the level of your English skills based on the grades. If you feel your grades do not give the right impression of your English skills, we strongly recommend you to take a language test to indicate your proficiency.
For information on the documents you need to submit to indicate your language skills with previous studies, please see //www.uta.fi/admissions/application-documents.
