Support process

Before submitting the JOO application to the target university, the student must apply for a support statement for the JOO studies.

The student must apply for the support statement at least one month before the application period at the target university ends. The expediency of each support application will be considered separately, and the student cannot receive the decision before processing the application.

The applications to the University of Lapland can be processed with flexibility also outside application periods.
