Open university studies

Open university studies are available to all, irrespective of age, basic education and goals. The studies follow the degree requirements of the relevant university and are equivalent to basic university education in terms of their learning outcomes, content and level of qualifications. Open university education supports the goals of lifelong learning.

At an open university, you can complete individual courses or larger study modules. Contact teaching is mainly organised in the evenings and during weekends, while online teaching is largely independent of time and location.

The University of Helsinki Open University is active in Lahti, offering a range of online university studies. LUT University also provides open university education in Lahti, while the Päijät-Häme Summer University and Lahti Academy of Liberal and Fine Arts provide access to open university studies offered by other Finnish higher education institutions.

Continuing education

Universities provide continuing education that is designed to meet the needs of workplaces, focus on specific topics or target specific professions. One of the key goals is to update and expand the participants’ professional competence.

The studies range from brief informative sessions and seminars to comprehensive expert and specialisation modules of dozens of credits in scope. Where possible, continuing education is organised so that it can be completed alongside work or as part of work. Under certain conditions, continuing education programmes, or parts of them, can be included in a university degree.

Support for study skills

The Lahti University Campus and LAB University of Applied Sciences jointly organise open and free events in Lahti focusing on the development of study skills. An online course on study skills is also available.



A MOOC, short for massive open online course, is usually openly accessible to everyone. MOOCs offer a form of study that is independent of time and location and is equally well suited to participants looking to expand their professional competence and participants who want to learn for the sake of learning.
