The Open University of LUT University organises and offers Open University courses in technology and business for everyone. The quality and standard of Open University courses are equivalent to those of university courses taught at LUT. Individual faculties are responsible for course contents.
Open University courses are mainly taught in Finnish. You can attend regardless of your age, educational aims or previous schooling.
Some courses may require prior studies. These are specified in the course details. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that he or she is able to complete the course.
