Studies at the Open University may consist of separate courses or whole study programmes. Almost all of the subjects and courses available in English are studied through distance learning. You can study conveniently from wherever you are without an obligation to travel anywhere!  Finnish language courses are offered as contact teaching. 

Open University teaching corresponds to university teaching in quality and standard. You can start studying at any time during the year through distance learning. You can complete either individual courses or a whole study programme. Please note that you cannot get a diploma or complete an academic degree at the Open University.
