Academic Year and Registration

The academic year at the University of Vaasa is divided into autumn semester (September-December) and spring semester (January-May) and both semesters are further divided into two study periods. Some of the courses might take place only during one period and therefore start in the middle of the semester. Students are required to register to each course separately.

Students are advised to arrive in Vaasa during the official arrival days as the pick-up service is available only during those days.
