Welcome to Instructions for students | Open University

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.


Instructions for students include all the information and instructions needed in your studies. The instructions are grouped into eight themes:

Some of the instructions can be found under several themes, depending on which stage of studies they are relevant for.  

The Open University instructions and bulletins are shown to all students. You do not have to choose a degree programme to see them.
At the same time, the website of the Open University has been redesigned as a whole. Thanks to the redesign, all continuing learning opportunities at the University of Helsinki – Open University studies, specialisation and qualification trainings to supplement degrees as well as further education – can be accessed more easily from the University’s main website.

The new website and the course catalogue of the Open University is available through the Admissions and education channel on the University of Helsinki’s website at: https://www.helsinki.fi/en/admissions-and-education/open-university

We are further developing the new website based on feedback. You can send feedback
to the address: avoinyo-verkkopalvelut@helsinki.fi. Thank you!
