What are path studies?

Path studies are an alternative route to a degree student. You study first year studies with a degree group at the Open UAS.

Target Audience, to whom?

Path studies are right for you if

  • your goal is a study right in a degree programme
  • you want to take advantage of the intermediate year by studying purposefully
  • you are ready for full-time studies
  • you want to try to study Health Business Management at a University of Applied Sciences or in the fields of health care, business or engineering without losing your first-time quota in a joint application
  • after a bachelor's degree, you want to continue directly to master’s studies, before fulfilling the work experience requirement

Realisation and content

Studies are realised in English language and fully online. Studies comprise interactive online contact sessions (synchronous learning), group work and independent studies on the learning platform.

There is no need to travel in Finland because of the studies. The student oneself is responsible for ensuring that she/he has internet connection and other IT facilities that allows studying online as well as being present on mandatory synchronous online sessions.

The path studies consist of 20 credits:
