Path Studies

Open UAS path studies are an alternative route to a degree! Path studies are a great way of trying out higher education studies, or switching fields without an entrance exam. Application to path studies takes place twice a year: in the summer and at the end of the year.

Path studies consist of the first year of studies of a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree completed alongside degree students. Completing studies through path studies is not more flexible than degree studies. After having successfully completed path studies, you can apply for a degree study right through Open UAS   separate application and continue your studies seamlessly until graduation.

Open Studies do not affect the quota reserved for first-time applicants in joint application.
The price of path studies is 400 €. 
Turku UAS’ degree students cannot apply for path studies.
