Start of studies

Studying ConREM includes two semesters studying in Helsinki and two in Berlin. This is mandatory as each module is provided at only one of the two universities and is consequently depended on the study location. Accordingly, students are obliged to organize their visa/residence permit and accommodation before arriving to Finland as well as to Berlin.

This means that one, freshly accepted ConREM students already in their home country must apply for residence permit firstly to Finland, unless they are not possessing an EU citizenship.

Organizational information

After enrolment, ConREM students receive access to moodle providing helpful information regarding residence permit, Erasmus, accommodation and other important issues.

Entry regulations / visa

Please ensure that you make early inquiries about the applicable entry regulations. Please note! Non EU-students need for Finland a Finnish visa/residence permit and for the semesters in Germany a German residence permit! For information regarding visa and residence permit requirements please contact your embassy. Universities do not offer visa support.


Health insurance

All students have to provide proof of health insurance before official enrolment. The proof of health insurance is also required for your visa application.
