Path Studies

Did you apply for a study place but lucked out? Higher education applications are much like try-outs for sports – if you didn’t make it to the team the first time, we are here to give you a second chance. Or maybe you chose the wrong team and want to join a new one?

As a Path Student, you will complete the first year of studies from one of our degree programmes. With a lot of hard work and some luck, you will be eligible to apply to become a degree student through separate applications. Pick a team and apply now!

How Do Path Studies Work?

Read more

The path studies are comprised of first-year studies in a UAS degree, approx. 60 ECTS credits. The studies can contain multiform studies, online studies or contact teaching. In terms of youth education leading to a degree, the full-time studies are mostly organized in the daytime (at 8–16 o’clock). The multiform studies are mostly organized in the evenings or a couple of days (at 8–16 o’clock) per week.

Path studies can be started without a right to study for a degree at a university of applied sciences, and there are no school education requirements as in degree studies at a university of applied sciences. Some of the multiform training programmes are an exception. Degree students at Turku University of Applied Sciences cannot enrol as Open UAS students at Turku University of Applied Sciences.
