Upgrade your knowledge or learn something new on university courses free or charge through FITech.

The course selection offers plenty of interesting topics to study, whether you’re a lifelong learner in working life or a high schooler looking for some extra courses. The application period is now open and will end about a week before the starting date of each course.

First courses take off in August but there are many courses starting later during the fall. In addition, some courses are continuously on-going. Majority of the courses are organised as online studies.

Studies range from beginners’ courses to advanced level

You can start learning a new topic on a beginner course or deepen your knowledge on something more familiar on intermediate and advanced courses.

Beginner-level courses can be found in the FITech course offering on subjects such as 5G technology, programming, software engineering and artificial intelligence.

If you already have experience on the FITech course topics acquired from previous studies, work or hobbies, you can jump right into intermediate or advanced courses. Don’t forget to read the prerequisites before applying!
