Open University studies by degree programme
The Open University offers courses from the University of Helsinki’s degree programmes, spanning dozens of different fields. There are no age restrictions or prior education requirements, and courses begin throughout the year. 

This page features the Open University’s course catalogue organised by degree programme. Courses corresponding to bachelor’s degree programmes are for the first-cycle (bachelor’s) stage of studies and those corresponding to master’s degree programmes are for the second-cycle (master’s) stage.  

Most bachelor’s level studies are available to all with no previous education in the field. For the master’s level, students must usually have some knowledge or prior studies in the field of the programme or an adjacent field. The course page will indicate whether any prior studies are required for the course.   

In spring 2021, we will release a study search function that covers studies at the University of Helsinki from bachelor’s programmes to doctoral programmes and continuous learning. Until the new search function is available, you can find individual courses through the Studies service.
