Open UAS

Open UAS — avai­lable to eve­ry­one

Open Stu­dies are open to eve­ry­one, irres­pec­ti­ve of age or educa­tio­nal background. Open Stu­dies at Kare­lia UAS (Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Sciences) offer you an oppor­tu­ni­ty to stu­dy cour­ses that are part of Kare­lia UAS degrees.

Open Stu­dies give you an oppor­tu­ni­ty to:

  • deve­lop your exper­ti­se or the know­led­ge and skills nee­ded in wor­king life
  • find a field/profession of your inte­rest
  • take cour­ses befo­re applying for a degree pro­gram­me
  • learn about stu­dying at Kare­lia UAS
  • stu­dy as a hob­by

Open Stu­dies are part-time stu­dies and sub­ject to a fee. Most of the cour­se options are avaible in Fin­nish but some can also be com­le­ted in English. Plea­se note that the stu­dies often con­tain con­tact les­sons and requi­re atten­dance in Joen­suu, Fin­land.

Open Stu­dies offer you the pos­si­bi­li­ty to comple­te degree cour­ses, even if you can­not comple­te the who­le degree through them. In order to comple­te a degree you have to be a degree stu­dent at Kare­lia UAS. If you have comple­ted Open Stu­dies and you are later cho­sen as a degree stu­dent at Kare­lia UAS, the cre­dits of all success­ful­ly comple­ted Open Stu­dies cour­ses can be trans­fer­red to your Kare­lia UAS degree.

Infor­ma­tion for inter­na­tio­nal stu­dents

Open Stu­dies are part of the Fin­nish adult educa­tion sys­tem. They are basical­ly avai­lable for all, alt­hough they are main­ly tar­ge­ted to tho­se alrea­dy living in Fin­land. This is because Open UAS stu­dents are not entit­led to a stu­dent visa. Howe­ver, if you are visi­ting Fin­land on a tem­po­ra­ry short-term visa or if you do not need a resi­dence per­mit to enter Fin­land (EU stu­dents), it is pos­sible for you to take Open Stu­dies cour­ses.
