Enrollment and Terms of Cancelling
Enrollment to Open Studies is done three times a year. Use one of the following electronic forms:
New students: (Form is closed. See enrollment times below) Use this form if you haven’t taken Open Studies at VAMK before.
Continuing students:(Form is closed. See enrollment times below) Use this form to enroll to new courses if you already are a student of VAMK Open Studies.
- Studies that begin in the autumn (periods 1 and 2): Enrollment begins on the 6th of August at 8.00 o'clock
- Studies that begin in the spring (periods 3 and 4): Enrollment begins on the 3rd of December
- Period 5 and Summer studies: Enrollment begins on the 8th April.
The enrollment is binding. It is not possible to enroll by telephone. The enrollment must be done to be able to attend the courses and it has to be done before the studies begin. The students are taken to courses in enrollment order. As the tuition is integrated in degree groups there is a limited amount of places available on the courses. If the course in question has already started the teacher of the course decides if the student can still join the group. The student gets further information about studying (by e-mail) about one week before the studies begin.
The enrollment must be cancelled before the studies start. Cancelling must be done in writing (e-mail is ok). If enrollment is cancelled later than this, a full tuition fee will be charged. If a student drops out, paid fees will not be returned. Leaving the tuition fee unpaid does not mean cancelling the studies.
