About this program
Bachelor's Program in Science
The Faculty of Science is opening a Bachelor's Program in Science taught fully in English and open for applications for anybody with a high school diploma including advanced math and physics or chemistry studies. The Program offers an interdisciplinary education. During the first half year, all students receive a foundation in university-level math and basic programming skills. After this, they can choose a specialization study track, with second- and third-year university-level courses offered in math, computer/data science, physics and chemistry. It is possible to either deepen the studies in one of these study tracks or to combine studies of two or three tracks to get a truly multidisciplinary education.
The Bachelor's Program in Science offers an interdisciplinary education that will enable you to work on the cutting edge of exciting basic research and application development in math, physics, chemistry and computer/data science.

Bachelor's Programme in Science has four study tracks: chemistry, computer and data science, mathematics and physics. You can select any of these study tracks according to your preferences at the beginning of your studies. The track determines which courses you should take. You can find the preliminary syllabus for the academic year 2019-2020 in Instructions for Students.
In the chemistry study track, you get an education about the fundamental concepts and modern experimental methods of chemistry, related to an understanding of the nature and the role of science and new technologies in society in the future. Bioeconomics, circular economy, novel energy sources, food production, clean water and air, as well as health care set challenges that require a strong knowledge of chemistry.
Computer and data science
The students in the study track of computer and data science acquire the skills to build modern software both by doing hands-on exercises and projects and by studying the fundamental ideas underlying how computers work and how they can be used efficiently. They also get an introduction to the new possibilities created by artificial intelligence and the analysis of large masses of data.
The mathematics study track emphasises mathematics as a science of its own. It offers an introduction both to the key concepts and methods of modern mathematics as well as a wider view on the exact world of mathematics, studying exactly defined concepts and the properties and relationships that emerge among these. The study track offers a good grounding for continued studies in mathematics on the master's and doctoral levels.
In the physics study track, you get an education about the classical and quantum mechanical foundations of modern physics, and a view on how this knowledge relates to the modern understanding of the nature of the universe and new technologies.
The yearly tuition fee (for non-EU/EEA citizens only) is 13000€
Graduates of the Program have excellent employment opportunities in Finland and EU countries in areas such as IT companies, nanoscience, and chemical industries. MSc graduates also have very good chances to continue in basic research in university or research institute PhD Programs.
