The path to a degree from Open UAS studies

Were you left without a study place? Would you like to get to know a new field? At Turku University of Applied Sciences, you can start your own study path or complete first-year studies in a certain field together with degree students.

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.
