LUT Avoin yliopisto


Open University courses are mainly organised as integrated courses, which means that there are a few study places in undergraduate courses reserved for open university students. Intensive courses are organised in the spring only in mathematics. The forms and methods of teaching used vary from course to course and are indicated in the course description.

The quality and standard of Open University courses are equivalent to those of university courses taught at LUT. Some courses may require upper secondary school level knowledge in the field of study. If a course has some pre-requisites, they are indicated in the course descriptions. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that they are able to complete the course.


The literature related to the course is mentioned in the description. Books can be borrowed from the LUT Academic Library.
