Admissions and enrolment

Those accepted to study at HTW Berlin and Helsinki Metropolia will receive a letter of acceptance at least one month prior to the start of the first semester.

The letter providing notification of acceptance lists all the documents which must be submitted for enrolment. Failure to provide confirmation or pay the semester fee will result in loss of the place.

Semester fee

ConREM is a German-Finnish joint degree programme. In Finland from 2017 on, non-EU/EEA students considered as degree students have to pay a tuition fee for their study programme in accordance with national law. However, for ConREM-students an exception applies and via scholarships all ConREM-students are entirely released from paying tuition fee to Metropolia UAS.                                                                                       

Nevertheless, all ConREM students are still required to pay the semester fee to HTW Berlin. This means that ConREM students who are going to Finland are required to pay the semester fee for each semester and have to re-register as usual for each upcoming semester (by paying the full amount of the semester fee, which is around 300 euros, to HTW Berlin’s bank account). After paying the fee, they can submit a written application for reimbursement of the semester ticket fee for public transport (around 180-200 euros). This application must be sent to During the students’ study time in Germany, the full semester fee includes the semester ticket for public transport, which is integrated into the StudentCard and can be used for public transport in Berlin zone ABC.
