VALINTATAPA 1: VALINTAKOE

Valintakoe                           40 pistettä

 

VALINTATAPA 2: KOULUMENESTYS JA VALINTAKOE (koskee vain ylioppilastutkinnolla hakevia)

Vaihtoehto 2B

Koulumenestys                   60 pistettä (ylioppilastutkinnon arvosanat)

Valintakoe                           40 pistettä

Yhteensä                            100 pistettä

 

Koulumenestyksen pisteytys

Koulumenestyspisteet muodostuvat ylioppilastutkintotodistuksen perusteella. Ylioppilastutkintotodistuksen arvosanat saadaan hakijarekisteriin suoraan ylioppilastutkintolautakunnalta.

Koulumenestyspisteet lasketaan ylioppilastutkintotodistuksen yksittäisistä aineista (äidinkieli, paras pitkänä kirjoitettu kieli, matematiikka sekä paras reaalikoe seuraavista: fysiikka, kemia ja biologia).

Abiturienttien ei tarvitse merkitä hakemukseensa ylioppilastutkintotodistuksen arvosanoja, sillä ne kerätään suoraan ylioppilastutkintolautakunnalta.

Valintakoe

Opiskelijavalinnassa käytetään Centria-ammattikorkeakoulun omaa valintakoetta. 

Valintakoe on 3 tuntia kestävä kirjallinen koe. Siinä mitataan opiskeluvalmiuksia ja soveltuvuutta teknilliselle alalle sekä englannin kielen taitoa. Kielikoe on pakollinen kaikille ja se arvioidaan hyväksytty / hylätty. Vain hyväksytyn kielikokeen suorittanut hakija voi tulla valituksi. Koe on yhteinen pohjakoulutuksesta riippumatta. Valintakoetulos on voimassa kyseisen haun ajan.

Syksyn 2016 valintakokeen ajankohta ilmoitetaan myöhemmin.

Student stories - Information Technology


   

All set towards my dream job!

I came to Finland because I was playing professional ice hockey and my career led me to Kokkola. Along with doing sports I was offered a job where I worked at for a one year before realizing that I wanted to use the opportunity of Finland’s free education system and there happened to be a university of applied sciences at Kokkola. I had a gap year after finishing high school, so I had a lot to prepare when applying to the university. Luckily the application process went well and I completed my entrance exams, and I got accepted at Centria.

Kokkola is a great town for students. It is a small city where all the places that students need are located close by and there is a great local community which will help if necessary.

Everyone has a dream job, and that’s also my case. I would really like to continue living in Finland, work in some Finnish IT company, perform well and advance in my career in the field of Information Technology.
 I know that in the future people will rely more and more on technology.

Centria offers studies in the field of Information Technology, which concentrate a lot on practical knowledge. Teachers with huge experience in IT are offering great and interactive teaching, which is really necessary because IT is such a technical field that hands-on experience is useful.
