Lead paragraph

Through the Open Path flexible separate application you can apply for most of the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes conducted in English and in Finnish.

The Open Path flexible separate application is meant for applicants who have completed all the studies required for the completion of a degree but who have not graduated. A sum of at least 210 ECTS (Bachelor) / 90 ECTS (Master) completed in discontinued degree studies in Haaga-Helia and after that in Haaga-Helia Open University of Applied Sciences is required for eligibility. Please note that a completed degree does not grant eligibility to apply. The credits required for eligibility may be no more than ten years old. The studies (including the thesis) must be registered in the student register before the applicant submits the application. The studies must be registered so that they show on the official transcript of records. Studies completed on will not be accepted in this application, but studies missing from the degree must be completed at Haaga-Helia Open University of Applied Sciences.

Please note: Before filling in the application, the applicant must contact the guidance counsellor of the degree programme in question and make sure that all studies required for the degree have been completed and registered.

An applicant applying in the Open Path flexible separate application process may not have any study right in a University of Applied Sciences in Finland in studies leading to a degree.

The one place per student provision applies. The applicant may confirm only one study place in higher education leading to a degree during one academic term.

Cheating during studies in the Open University of Applied Sciences can lead to rejection of the applicant’s application for degree studies.

Please read the complete admission criteria in Studyinfo,, before applying.

Please note that there are tuition fees which concern citizens of countries outside the EU/EEA and Switzerland.
