Enrollment and Start of Studies

If you have received a notice of admission from the HTW Berlin, firstly congratulation! You have received an offer to study in the ConREM programme. Now, placeholders have 7 days to provide online confirmation of their intention to enroll (accepting your study place), pay the semester fee and provide a proof for a Finnish health insurance. During the enrollment process, your ConREM student status will be also automatically allocated. Further information about the ConREM enrollment procedure can be found here.

If you have questions considering the admission/enrollment process (incl. semester fee), please direct all your inquiries to the Student Service Center of the HTW Berlin. Metropolia UAS has no role in the ConREM admission/enrollment procedures, even though your studies will start in Helsinki. Therefore, you will not receive a separate invitation letter from the Metropolia UAS, only a welcoming letter that explains the further steps considering your arrival to Helsinki. This welcoming letter in a nutshell can be found here.

Successful admission, confirmation, payment of semester fee and submission of the hard copies of the required documents leads to automatic enrollment. The start of the ConREM studies takes place in Helsinki in late August/early September. However, latest till the end of the 1. Week of October, you must be present in Helsinki to take up your study place, otherwise you may lose your study place

Accordingly, failure to provide confirmation, payment of semester fee or late arrival in Helsinki will result in loss of the place. Therefore, you should apply for a Finnish residence permit as soon as you have received the official acceptance letter through the HTW online application portal, as the residence permit application process can take up to 6 months, and it would be a pity, if you lose your ConREM study place due to late arrival to Helsinki.

Please note, deferring the start of your ConREM studies to a year later is not possible under any circumstances (also not due to delayed residence permit process)!
