Courses and enrolment
Students of Open University of Applied Sciences study together with degree students. Each term students can choose from a variety of interesting and useful studies. Note that some courses may have prerequisites. Check the details of timetable and language of instruction carefully.
Study offerings and schedules
You can view the study offering on Laurea's Curriculum website. On the left hand side of the page choose Study offerings > Open UAS. The Open UAS study offering will be updated during the academic year, which means that all implementations listed will not be offered in each term.
The schedules of the study units can be viewed in the Study schedules chart. You can see the schedules by clicking the code of the study unit and the code of each implementation.
Changes to the schedules are possible, so check the schedules before the studies begin and be present at the first session. Please read the Open UAS payment information and cancellation policy - fees are not returned once the study entitlement has begun.
Enrolment period for open UAS study units for summer period 2019 is on 8.-14.4.2019.
Check the implementation plan carefully - language, prerequisities, implementation method and possible contact lessons. See also the tuition fees and cancellation policy before enrolling.
Studies must be paid within enrolment. If you already have paid the annual fee for the academic year 2018 - 2019, you can study for free on study units ending at the latest 31.7.2019. With the annual fee for year 2019 you can study whole year including Laurea's summer studies, if the studies are offered for open UAS students and if there are free study places after degree students' enrolment period.
The cancellation for open UAS study units must be done two weeks before the beginning of studies by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that we do not return the annual payment after beginning of your study entitlement even if you don't use your right to study in Laurea.
