Summersemester.fi is a joint portal of 23 universities of applied sciences. The portal features a selection of summer studies available at universities of applied sciences.
You can select courses from the extensive selection (make sure that your selected courses are suitable for your own degree) and complete them during the summer semester.
The courses are free of charge for degree students and exchange students at universities of applied sciences and for path students at Open UAS. Open UAS students pay a fee determined by the Open UAS to the university of applied sciences that offers the course in question.
The portal contains basic information on the courses. Each course has a link to the website of the UAS in question, where you can find more specific information on the implementation and enrol on the course.

SummerSemester, the joint summer course offering provided by all universities of applied sciences, will expand smoothly into the autumn semester and adopt a new name in the process.

This autumn, students will be able to select courses from another university of applied sciences free of charge and include the studies in their degree. CampusOnline makes it possible to take and complete courses 100% online.
The CampusOnline course information will be published on 27 August 2018. The enrolment period begins on 3 September 2018.
