Applying with open university of applied science's studies

Students who have completed studies in the Open University of Applied Sciences (UAS) may use the open UAS pathway to apply for degree student status on the basis of these studies without applying through the national joint application process. The separate Open UAS application process recognises completed Open UAS studies which are applicable to the degree programme being applied for as well as relevant studies completed at other Finnish higher education institutions. The student selection process is informed by educational resources and occupancy rate.

English language instruction programmes can also be applied for through the Open UAS. Courses should mainly have been completed in the language of instruction.

The director of the department decides if the applicant’s studies can be recognised for the degree programme.
