Open UAS at VAMK

Do you want to develop the skills you need in the working life, improve your common knowledge or are you planning to apply for a degree with us? Open UAS courses are open to you regardless of your age and level of education.

At the Open UAS, you can study in accordance with the curricula of VAMK’s degree programmes in technology, business administration and social and health care, regardless of your basic education or age, without being a degree student. Teaching is organised both in teaching groups for degree students and in separate groups for students of the Open UAS.

Would the Open UAS be a good fit for you?

Open UAS is suitable for you if

  • you want to develop your common knowledge in topics that interest you
  • you want to increase the skills you need in working life
  • you are considering switching to another field of work
  • you are planning to apply for a Bachelor’s degree or a Master’s degree
  • you want to complete any unfinished university studies.
Why study at Open UAS?

At the Open UAS, you have the flexibility to study individual courses that interest you or a broader range of modules. The studies are practical and work-life oriented, and include both theory and practice. The studies you complete can be accepted as a part of your degree if you later apply and are selected as a VAMK’s degree student.

How is the education implemented?

We offer education as contact instruction, as online studies and as blended learning:

  • Contact instruction is organised on the premises of our UAS, where the teacher and students meet face-to-face.
  • Online studies takes place in the learning platform Moodle.
  • You can complete online studies wherever you are, for example, abroad.
  • Blended learning combine contact instruction and distance learning with independent work by students. This form of learning is also well suited to work-life oriented learning.
