Instructions on how to use the system

Instructions on how to use the system

Searching the supply

  • Please notice that all Open UAS selection is visible at both Finnish and English side. Therefore it is very important to check the teaching language in connection to the study information.

  • Studies are searched using search restrictions found in the left side. The results can be restricted using several restrictions. Only those restrictions are visible to choose that are in use at the moment.

  • Above the page is an open search field. Please remember to empty the field if you move to use specific search restrictions.

  • Search results show 10 first results. Above the results you can find a "next" button which leads you to more results.

  • Other information restrictions offer the possibility to restrict the search according to teaching language, virtual studies, multifield studies and separately Master Degree Programme studies.

  • Above the page you can see the chosen restrictions in use. You can delete all of them from the right side of the page.

Enrollment and cancellation

  • You can see the exact enrollment period in the course information.

  • In the right margin you can see an "Add to basket" button which is not active when the enrollment time has not yet begun or has ended. In the course information you can see which one is in question.

  • When enrolling, double check your email. If the email is incorrect, you will not receive any messages, e.g. confirmation of the study place. When you have enrolled in the studies, please check that you receive messages. If not, contact avoinamk metropolia fi.

  • When enrolling, you will carry out a strong identification using either online banking codes or Mobile ID. You can also use weak identification, but do not use it if you are able to use strong identification. Otherwise you have to visit a service point of Metropolia's Student and Admission Services to do a strong identification. Lack of strong identification prevents receival of Metropolia's student ID. Staff and studenst of other Applied Sciences can identify themselves using the HAKA identification. Notice! Strong identification using online banking codes is currently disabled.

  • You are able to enroll in only target group study in the same session: implementation (i.e. course), path or module. In terms of courses and modules, you can enroll in and receive a study place to several courses/modules. In terms of paths, you can receive only one study place during the same semester. If you receive a place, you are not able to enroll in another path. If you are left in the waiting list, you can enroll in another path.

  • If the path includes a selection method (interview or written exam), it’s possible to enroll in several similar paths (in different session). All enrollees of such paths are invited to the test. Those who pass the test, will be offered study places inside the amount of the seats available. The places will be offered in enrollment order. Therefore, the test will not determine the selection but only stands for an eliminating method. The person who will be offered the place, will get a message where the place must be accepted or declined. When one has accepted a place to one path, it’s not possible to accept a place to any other, even though one would get several offers. In such case one must determine which place to accept.

  • When entering you name, write it in form Maija Mehiläinen. Not in maija mehiläinen or MAIJA MEHILÄINEN.

  • At the moment, it's not possible to give a deviant billing address. The bill will be sent to the address of the enrollee.

  • If you cancel our studies, ALWAYS do it by using the cancellation link in the automatic message you got. In terms of refunds, send email to avoinamk metropolia fi.

Timing of the studies

  • You can see the schedule of the course in connection to the course information. If you want to examine schedules of several courses at the same time (notice overlap), you have to use the Schedule Machine. See instructions on how to use the Schedule Machine.
  • If the schedule is empty, it has not yet been published. An exception to this are 100% virtual studies. This is mentioned in the course information. Enrollment to courses with empty schedules happens at one's own risk. Schedules proven to be later unsuitable for the student does not entitle to free cancellation.

  • The "timing" field (date - date) in connection to the study information does not necessarily represent the correct beginning. The timing must always be checked from the schedule. Link to the Schedule Machine can not be found in the information system. See instructions on how to use the Schedule Machine.

Notice! Strong identification using online banking codes is currently disabled. Therefore use weak identification --> choose "skip and move to registration". Students and personnel of other Universities of Applied Sciences can use HAKA identification.

Spring 2020 paths and modules

There will be no paths in English starting in spring 2020.

Below is also a table of course enrollment times by the degrees. The table is updated when the times become clear. Despite the announced times, courses may be published around the year in which case the enrollment times differ. Notice. Even though all degree programmes have been listed, is does not necessarily mean that there are any courses offered.

Important before enrollment

Before enrollment, please familiarize yourself carefully with

Foreign students note

Depending on citizenship, foreign students (i.e. students without citizenship of Finland) may need a visa or a residence permit for Open UAS Studies in Finland. Admission of the permit can however be difficult for Open UAS studies as the studies do not lead to a degree. Foreing students also need Finnish Social Security number to be able to study in Metropolia's Open UAS. For further information, please visit the website of the International House Helsinki.

Metropolia does not provide foreign students any certificates about Open UAS studies for the application of visa/residence permit.

The studies in Open UAS often contain contact lessons and require attendance in Metropolia UAS (Helsinki, Finland). Studies also require sufficient study and language skills.

About pre-tests in Open UAS paths

Some Open UAS paths include a pre-test, that has to be passed. Information on the test is in the path information. All enrollees are invited to the test, including those in the waiting list.

However, the pre-test is only eliminating and students are selected in enrollment order to the studies. The amount of students selected is stated in the path information.

Those left in the waiting list can receive a study place to the path in the following situations: A person entitled to the place does not pass the test, a person who has passed the test does not accept it or cancels it after accepting.

All accepted path students will receive an email which includes a link to accept the place. If one does not accept the place in 24 hours, it will be offered forward.
