Open UAS

In addition to the regular degree programmes, Lahti University of Applied Sciences (LAMK) also offers so-called Open Studies coordinated by LAMK Open UAS. The Open Studies are part of the Finnish adult education system. Open UAS courses are individual, fee-charging courses - they are not full degree programmes, even though they are based on the undergraduate curricula of LAMK.

Open Studies are in principle available for all, regardless of age, citizenship or educational background. However, they are mainly targeted for those already living in Finland. This is because Open Studies are not full-time studies and do not lead to a degree or professional qualification - it is therefore not usually possible to get a long-term student residence permit to Finland based on Open UAS courses.

Please note that LAMK Open Studies are mainly arranged as contact lessons which require the student's attendance in Lahti.
