Widen your know-how via Open university
HAMK’s open studies are for all who want to study in a university.
Choose Open Studies if you are interested in developing yourself or your professional skills or you want to update the know-how you already have with specific study units or courses. Study Path is the right choice for you if you aim at becoming a degree student. All studies on these pages are university level and they are selected parts from degrees to match the different needs of our open university students. The difference between Open Studies and Study Path is that the student who chooses Study Path aims at becoming a degree student by studying the whole first academic year with the other first year students of the Bachelor’s degree or the first semester of the Master’s degree with the Master’s degree students.

There are two different ways to study HAMK’s Open Studies, 8-16 and 18-100 methods. The 8-16 method is studying in the daytime and on weekdays. 18-100 studies are multiform studies organised outside office hours so that you may participate in them alongside your job.
