Open UAS path studies include a predetermined number of studies from a certain field leading up to Humak degree studies. Bachelor’s degree path studies are worth 60 ECTS and master’s degree path studies are worth 15 to 20 ECTS credits.
Path studies are intended for students who are interested in becoming Humak degree students. They are especially useful for students left without a study place in joint application, who want to make use of their gap year by studying at the Open UAS. Path studies are fully credited as part of degree studies. By completing path studies, you can graduate from Humak at the same time as full-time degree students. If you are not eligible for bachelor’s degree studies, you can gain eligibility by completing path studies.
Currently path studies are only offered in Finnish.
