Separate Application through Open UAS, Bachelor's Degree,
Applying as a degree student based on Open UAS studies takes place with a separate application system. Through the Open UAS path, the applicant can apply for one study option / separate application.
Applying in the separate application does not limit the applicant’s opportunity to apply for a maximum of six study options in the higher education institutions’ joint application. However, the applicant can accept only one study place leading to a degree at a higher education institution in terms of studies beginning in the same semester.
Studies completed at an Open University of Applied Sciences can be fully or partly accredited as part of the degree, according to the valid degree requirements.
The degree programmes included in the Open UAS separate application, with the information on starting places, can be found in the Studyinfo.fi service. The application also takes place through Studyinfo (application form).
Application period: 1.11.2021 at 9.00 - 12.11.2021 at 15.00 Finnish time
An applicant is eligible if they have, by the end of the application period, completed at least 35 ECTS credits of the degree programme for which they are applying at Turku University of Applied Sciences by the right to study at Open Studies or separate study right. CampusOnline studies are accepted if they are suitable for the degree programme applied to. The applicant must check the suitability of completed CampusOnline studies with their tutor teacher before applying.
The student selection takes place on the basis of the weighted average grade of the studies completed at Turku UAS by the right to study at Open Studies. The weighted average is calculated on the basis of all numerical grades recorded on the transcript of records by the end of the application period. Only fully completed courses' grades can be taken into account. If the studies completed in TUAS Open UAS are all included in the curriculum of the degree programme in question, the weighted grade average can be checked from the individual study plan of Peppi system.
In calculating the weighted average grade, weighting is carried out for all numerically evaluated courses, i.e. the course grade is multiplied with the number of credits for the course in question. The weighted grades are added up and the sum is divided with the number of credits from the numerically evaluated courses. The result is a weighted average, which is announced to two decimal places.
Order according to the average in such manner that each average earns a corresponding number of points (accurate to two decimal places). The points are added automatically in the system.
Acceptance limit: the minimum of 1.50 as average
Additional points on the basis of the number of study attainments:
36–40 ECTS =1 point
41–45 ECTS =1.5 points
46 ECTS or over = 2 points
In case of equal admission scores, applicants will be primarily ranked on the basis of their exact averages and secondarily by drawing lots by computer.
- The applicant fills in the application form at www.studyinfo.fi and by the end of the application period.
- The Admissions Office will verify the information submitted in the application (mean value recorded in the application form and evaluation of suitability of studies in cooperation with a representative from the degree programme in question).
