Open studies are open to everyone despite age and education. Study paths are pre-planned  extensive modules which include courses that are part of Centria’s degree programmes. A personal study plan is made with every student. The background of a student, his wishes and goals are taken into consideration. All courses can be included in a degree if a student continues later as a degree student.

Study paths start mainly in the end of August or in the beginning of September. Some paths can also begin in January. You can ask  for free places also in the middle of the semester . Studying takes place in the same groups with the degree  students. Courses can be held during the day, evenings, weekends or online . In some degree programmes it is also possible to study and work at the same time. Part of the studies  will be done online.

An open university student is not entitled to anykind of financial benefits (for example student allowence, discounts in trains and busses) based on his/her studies. If you are a customer of Public employment and business services, make sure your studies are approved before you enroll in the study path.
