If you cannot find studies that interest you in the Open University course selection, you can apply for right to study at the faculties and Language Centre of the University of Lapland.
PIA studies are integrated in the degree studies of the University (Finnish: perusopetukseen integroitu avoin yliopisto-opetus), meaning that the Open University students study in the same groups as degree students of University of Lapland. Teaching is mainly organised during the day.
You can see studies offered by our faculties under Study Guides in WebOodi.
