In the maturity essay, the students are expected to demonstrate both proficiency in their field of study and fluency in the written text.
For international master’s students and Finnish master’s students who have previously completed a Finnish bachelor degree, the abstract included in the master’s thesis serves as the maturity test so a separate maturity test is not required. The thesis supervisor marks in the thesis evaluation form that the familiarity with the field of study has been demonstrated in the abstract. Please see the writing guidelines concerning the abstract.
If you are a Finnish master’s student and have not written a maturity test in your bachelor degree (for example, if your bachelor degree is completed abroad), please check the instructions for the maturity test on the website Kypsyysnäyte.
