Open UAS study units and enrolment

Students of Open University of Applied Sciences study together with degree students. Each term students can choose from a wide variety of interesting and useful studies. Note that some courses may have prerequisites. Check the details of timetable and language of instruction carefully.

Study offering and schedules

You can view the study offering on Laurea's Curriculum website. On the hand left hand side of the page choose Study offerings > Open UAS. The Open UAS study offering will be updated during the spring and summer, which means that not all implementations currently listed will be offered in the autumn 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 autumn period will be in 13.-19.8.2018. 

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 2018, you can study for free on study units ending at the latest 31.12.2018. With the annual fee for academic year 2018-2019 you can study whole acedemic 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: avoinamk(at)  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.

Enrolment in path studies

Next enrolment period for open UAS path studies will be in August, 2018. Laurea offers path study places only in degree programmes in Finnish. The intake for path studies is about 10-20 % in addition to the intake of joint application of each degree programme.  Students for path studies will be selected in the order of enrolment and based on an interview. See for more info at the page Avoimen AMK:n polkuopinnot (in Finnish). 

Note that Master's Degree path studies have their own applying period. Read more at the Master's Degree path studies page.
