Doctors as alumni

By selecting a degree programme you are able to see the general content as well as the possible degree programme-specific content. You do not have to select a degree programme to see the Open University's instructions.

Everyone who has got their degree from the University of Helsinki, and all of the university's exchange students and staff members are considered its alumni. You can register as alumni anytime during your doctoral studies.
