Studies consist of first year studies of the degree programme.
You will study full time in the degree programme´s student group. There are two study places for open UAS students. The studies are conducted in English. Path studies in English require good oral and written English language skills.
During the first study year, you start to create a strong foundation in natural sciences, understanding the structure and function of the environment, and applying environmental thinking in engineering. You will gain and apply basic skills in environmental sampling and analyses, and be conversant with the Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) processes. You will achieve the competence to work as an assistant in simple, routine environmental monitoring and management duties.
The enrollment will start on 2 August at 9 am and end on 4 August at 11.59 pm. If there are still study places left after the enrollment period ends, the period may be continued. The registration form can be found on the “How to apply or register” tab. Places are filled on a first-come-first-serve basis and registration is done in our online store. Payment cannot be made upon registration, but an invoice will be sent to you later, if you are accepted into the path studies. Please note that you can sign up for one path studies option.
It is not possible to get student financial aid or other student benefits for the open UAS studies. Open University studies do not allow you to get residence permit in Finland.
If you are a registered jobseeker at the Employment and Economic Development Office, make sure that you can participate in the studies before registering as a path student.
The fee for the open path studies is 300 euros per year. Invoice is sent in the autumn.
The fee for the first year is the same for all students. When you become a degree student and are a non-EU/EEA student, you will have a tuition fee like all the other non-EU/EEA –students.
You can apply for admission to the degree programme based on your Open UAS studies. If you start path studies in the autumn 2021, you will be able to apply to become a degree student in the application on the basis of Open UAS studies in studyinfo.fi in May 2022.
Student selection is made considering your completed amount of credit points and study success. Study success means your grade point average of the studies completed during your Open UAS Path Studies. If necessary, students are placed in order by their GPA (highest to lowest).
Required amount of credit points (Bachelor in Environmental Engineering 50-60 credit points) should be completed by 31 July 2022.
