Application procedure

As a postgraduate student of any FFA member university and any Major, you are welcome to participate in postgraduate courses offered by the FFA. If you plan to have futures studies as the major, you need to apply for a formal postgraduate status at University of Turku Graduate School at Turku School of Economics.

In case you have a status as a postgraduate student in a Finnish university that is not a member of FFA, please contact the study guidance personnel in your university to find out about the possibilities of attending FFA postgraduate courses.
