Study Paths

If you are aiming for a degree, a study path is a great option for you! Study paths usually entail first-year degree studies, and studying takes place in the same group with degree students. You can find out more about our degree programmes on the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree pages.

Aiming for a Degree

After finishing your study path you can apply for a degree student status on the basis of your completed studies. Please familiarize yourself carefully with the selection criteria. The study paths are designed to last one academic year, for example if you start your studies during autumn term, you can apply for degree student status in the next spring’s application period.

Study path fee is 300 €. The fee is paid before the studies begin. You will receive a payment link (valid for 24 hours) when the student selections have been made.

Consider carefully whether you will be able to commit yourself to study path studies. The study paths are considered full-time studies. If you are a customer of Employment and Economic Development Office, please clarify any issues related to studying well in advance before applying for the studies. Open UAS studies do not qualify you for Kela’s student income and benefits.

Study path students are selected on the basis of an advance assignment or in the order of enrolment. Those chosen in the order of enrolment will receive the payment link after enrolling in the path. For paths with an advance assignments, chosen students will receive the payment link after the student selection is done.
