Open University provides courses from University of Helsinki's many different fields.
You can study only one course as well as a larger study module.
Courses in Swedish and English are available, even though most courses are offered in Finnish.
There are no age restrictions. Our youngest student has been only 11 years old and the oldest over 75!
Completed courses will be entered into the University of Helsinki’s student records. They can later be incorporated into a university degree.
Studies completed at the Open University can be used as a basis for applying to degree programmes at most University of Helsinki faculties. More information: Open University route
Open University students may be eligible for the adult education allowance from the Employment Fund, if they fulfill the relevant criteria.

NB! Due to the deployment of the new academic administration system at the University of Helsinki, enrolment for Open University courses is not possible from 15 to 30 May 2021. The deployment also affects also the activation of the University of Helsinki user account and the registration of the completed courses. You can attend MOOC-courses normally despite the deployment.
