The Open University is an organisation that provides university-level education for anyone interested, regardless of educational background or age. Teaching is aimed to be arranged during evenings and weekends so that as many students as possible are able to participate. Open university education has the same goals, contents and requirements as teaching at the university. Courses will be subject to a course fee.
The University of Vaasa Open University provides versatile studies and the possibility to study more flexible hours. Teaching is arranged mostly online. However some of the courses may be arranged as contact teaching in Vaasa and in our partner organizations as well.
