Open Studies - a Path to Degree Studies

It is not possible to obtain a degree through Open UAS Studies but the student aiming at degree studies must apply in Joint Application. Completed Open UAS Studies courses can be included to degree studies if the student is later admitted to a degree programme at VAMK.

At least 60 completed credit units of degree specific studies gives the possibility of applying for  degree studies on the basis of Open UAS Studies. Students applying with completed Open UAS Studies apply in a separate application that is arranged by the University of Applied Sciences.

More information about separate application can be found here.
