The application to the Open University is made with an online form (see below). The available studies can be found under the 'Education I apply for' when the application period is open and there is still availability on the course.
NOTE! Choose 'English' at the top of the page and accept the application procedure and course fees to proceed to the form.
NOTE! The application to the Open University education is binding!
The study groups are principally filled in order of arrival of the application forms. An exception are the intermediate studies for which selection of students is made. The admission requirements can be found in the course information.
For the degree students registered as present at the University of Tampere, a certain amount of places are reserved in the teaching groups of the Open University. The enrolment takes place in NettiOpsu. For degree students the studies are free of charge.
The application to the teaching organised in cooperating institutions is made via the institutions in question, if not mentioned otherwise. Please check the application period at the cooperating institution or at the course selection page under the course in question.
