Non-degree studies

The instruction belongs to the following themes

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.

Most faculties can grant the right to pursue non-degree studies to applicants who are not enrolled as degree students at the University of Helsinki. The right to study is limited to the course, grade or study module for which the right has been granted. The studies are subject to fees and they do not lead to a degree.

The right to study can be granted to, for example, a person who requires a grade or study module in a subject taught by a specific faculty for a degree being completed in a different university. The right to study can also be granted to a person who requires a grade or study module to supplement their degree or to obtain additional qualifications.

The application for the right to study must be submitted to the faculty in question. The application procedure and application periods vary by faculty.
