Open UAS

Free Open UAS courses for unemployed and those who were not admitted into universities

All the autumn courses of Open UAS have been published. Take a look and enroll! Most of the courses are organised online.

In autumn 2020, the Ministry of Education subsidises your Open UAS study fees, if you are:

  • unemployed
  • temporarily laid off
  • at risk of losing your job
  • if you applied to a university in the spring of 2020 but were not admitted.

The fee exemption applies to all offered study units/single courses and study modules. Path studies are not included in the free offering.

We are renewing our registration system. In February 2020 the e-form registration will partially be replaced with web shop registration where payments are to be made at the same time with course enrolment. Some of the courses still use e-form registration and fees are to be paid through a payment link sent to you via email afterwards.

The studies of open UAS follow the curricula of the degree studies and they consist of study units of degree education. Contact teaching takes place in degree students’ groups with places reserved for open UAS students, or in separate open UAS groups. Some courses are offered online, with no contact teaching. There is a limited number of places for open UAS students and the places are filled in the registration order, if not stated otherwise. Studying in open UAS is subject to a charge. The fee is at the maximum 15 € / study credit. The exact fee can be found in each course description.

If you cannot find courses you are looking for in the open UAS offering, check out the degree programmes at TAMK. If the courses you are looking for are offered on the degree programme side, please email us at avoinamk [at] tuni.fi, and we will discuss your possibilities to join the degree study group. After discussing with our team, you can sign up for the course with this form. Please mention in the form, with whom you have discussed about the course.

If there is no schedule in the course description, it has not been confirmed yet.

Please note that open UAS studies are not on-line studies, but require living in Tampere. You cannot receive a visa to Finland based on open UAS studies.
