Study Fees and Cancellations

Study fees

Studies in Metropolia’s Open UAS cost 15 €/credit. Term fees are not in use. In addition to the Open UAS fee, the studies may cause some reasonable costs (e.g. learning material).

The invoice of the studies is sent to the address given in connection to the enrolment. Study paths and study modules are invoiced at the beginning of the term. If a study path/study module is divided into two terms, it will be invoiced in two parts.

Cancellation terms

Courses, study paths and study modules do not have a full free of charge cancellation right. The customer is committed to the payment when enrolling to the study. Exception of this are those study paths, which require an interview or other evaluation of the aptitude. In these cases the customer is committed to the payment only after he/she has been accepted to the studies based on this evaluation.

The customer left on the waiting list is committed to the payment only after when he or she has accepted the offered place.


If the customer cancels the enrolment no later than 14 days before the beginning (= first contact lesson or the starting day informed) of the course, study path or study module, 50 % of the study fee can be refunded to the customer if requested and if the request is presented without delay. In terms of 100% virtual courses, that have a non-stop enrolment, the 14 day cancellation period starts when the customer enrols on the course.

Exceptions

  • If the customer is accepted as a degree student to Metropolia UAS before the beginning of the Open Studies, he or she has a right to cancel the study path or study module free of charge. However, this requires immediate informing about the cancellation by the customer to avoinamk metropolia fi.
  • If the customer is accepted as a degree student to  Metropolia UAS in the middle of studies, the payment of the possible second term studies of the study path or study module  will be refunded. The refund is not given for the first term studies. This requires immediate informing about the cancellation by the customer to avoinamk metropolia fi.
  • A degree student position to any other UAS or institution does not entitle to cancellation entirely free of charge nor refunds in the middle of studies.

If the studies are canceled due to the insufficient number of participants or some other corresponding reason, Metropolia does not invoice the customer.

Cancellations based on a medical certificate will be handled case-specifically.

Negative decisions related to any financial support do not entitle to free of charge cancellation or refunds.

All cancellations must be sent to avoinamk metropolia fi. An exception to this are the Information and Communication Technology NonStop -virtual study cancellations, which are sent to nonstop metropolia fi.
