Separate application through Open UAS, Bachelor's Degree

You can apply for degree studies through the Open UAS separate application when you have completed at least 35 ECTS credits of studies from the curriculum of the degree programme you are applying for. The studies be completed with a Finnish Open University of Applied Sciences study right. The studies may be completed as path studies or as individual courses. At least 35 ECTS of studies from the curriculum of the degree programme applied for completed with a separate right to study at Turku University of Applied Sciences also provide eligibility. 

The studies required for eligibility must be completed by the end of application period.

You may apply for up to three study options per Open UAS separate application period. On the application form, please be sure to place the degree programmes you apply for in order of preference, so that your first option is at the top of the application form.
When applying to a degree programme conducted in English based on Open UAS studies conducted in another language, a language test result is required. Please see the admission criteria for more information.

Studies completed at an Open UAS can be fully or partly accredited as part of a degree, according to valid degree requirements. Other studies completed at higher education institutes may also be accepted as part of a degree, but they are not included in the studies required for eligibility when applying for a degree study right through Open UAS separate application.

Applying in the separate application does not limit your opportunity to apply through the Finnish higher education institutions’ joint application. However, you can accept only one study place leading to a degree at a higher education institution during the same academic term.

Timetable

The application period is 2.5.2022 at 9.00 – 13.5.2022 at 15.00 Finnish time.

Degree programmes

Degree programmes for the spring period's separate application are published in Studyinfo.fi. The study options conducted in English are following:

Eligibility

You can apply for degree studies through the Open UAS separate application when you have completed at least 35 ECTS credits of studies from the curriculum of the degree programme you are applying for. The studies be completed with a Finnish Open University of Applied Sciences study right. The studies may be completed as path studies or as individual courses. At least 35 ECTS of studies from the curriculum of the degree programme applied for completed with a separate right to study at Turku University of Applied Sciences also provide eligibility. 

The studies required for eligibility must be completed by the end of application period.

When applying to a degree programme conducted in English based on Open UAS studies conducted in another language, a language test result or other proof of sufficient language skills are required (these are stated in Studyinfo.fi in the information of the study option you are applying for).

Selection criteria

Students are selected based on the weighted grade average of the studies required for eligibility, completed at either an Open UAS or with a separate right to study at Turku UAS. The weighted grade average is checked from the transcript of records you provide on your application form. The weighted grade average must be stated in the transcript of records. Your weighted grade average equals the number of points you receive. Additional points are awarded based on the number of credits you have attained in studies that comply with the instructions concerning studies required for eligibility. 

The weighted grade average is the average of all numeric grades on your transcript of records. Only grades for fully completed courses are considered. In addition to submitting a transcript of records that demonstrates that you have completed the studies required for eligibility, and contains the grades awarded for these studies, please enter your weighted grade average to two decimal places on the application form.

A weighted grade average is calculated by multiplying the numeric grade of each course with the number of credits completed. The weighted grades are added up, and the sum is divided with the total number of credits attained from numerically evaluated courses. Please not that only courses with a numeric evaluation are taken into account when calculating the weighted grade average.

Applicant scoring

You receive a number of points equal to the weighted grade average of your study attainments as described above (accurate to two decimal points). The points are automatically assigned on the application system.

Acceptance limit: minimum 1.50 weighted grade average

Additional points are awarded on the basis of attained credits:

  • 36–40 ECTS = 1 point
  • 41–45 ECTS = 1.5 points
  • 46 ECTS or over = 2 points

You do not need to enter the additional points on the application form. They are automatically assigned on the application system.

In case of equal admission scores, applicants will be primarily ranked based on the order of preferred study options, secondly on their exact averages, and finally by computerised random selection.
