Application for a Degree Student

Application instructions

Metropolia's Admission Services is responsible for the Open Path Application as well as the joint application process. Check the current application instructions and contact info from the "How to apply?" pages.

Recognition of prior learning (RPL)

If the student is accepted as a degree student in Metropolia or other university of applied sciences, it is possible to apply for the regocnition of studies completed in open studies as part of the degree. The RPL decisions are up to the university of applied sciences in question. The RPL application is done with the open studies transcript of records.

In Open UAS the RPL includes always a pedagogical solution decided by the teacher, which means that the student demonstrates his or her competence in a manner defined by the teacher. This way the studies are considered as completed in Metropolia and the normal Open UAS fee is required.
