Kuvituskuva: opiskelijat työssä

Lead paragraph

You can apply to become a degree student by completing studies in an Open university of applied sciences in Finland.

The Open path application process is for applicants who have already completed studies in an Open UAS in Finland and who wish to apply for a study place as a degree student based on those studies. If you have no studies completed in an Open UAS in Finland, please apply in the Joint application or SAT application.

If you are applying for a Bachelor's degree programme you are required to have at least 55 ECTS of degree programme specific Open UAS studies in Finland registered in the student register with a passing grade by the end of the application period. Only courses that have been completed in their entirety and which show on the official transcript of records can be considered.

If you are applying for Master's degree programmes you are required to have at least 30 ECTS of applicable Master's level Open UAS studies registered in the student register with a passing grade by the given deadline. Only courses that have been completed in their entirety and which show on the official transcript of records can be considered. In addition, applicants for Master's degree programmes must meet the eligibility requirements regarding a relevant Bachelor's degree and relevant work experience as defined in the admission criteria of each Master's degree programme.

Please note that all degree programmes require a minimum weighted GPA of 3,0. If the applicant has completed at least 180 ECTS of applicable studies required for eligibility in Haaga-Helia UAS, the applicant may be selected on discretionary basis without an absolute minimum GPA requirement.

Note that only studies completed within the last ten years may be considered. Studies that have been completed in a programme leading to a UAS degree may be considered if the applicant has left the studies without completing the degree.

Please note that any applicant through the Open Path may not have any study right in a Finnish UAS in studies leading to a degree.

If you have completed all studies required for a Bachelor's degree in Haaga-Helia but have not graduated, please find out more about the Open Path flexible separate application.
