Open University Tracks - Tampere University of Technology

Open University Tracks

Tampere University of Technology offers Open University tracks taught in English in the field of technology. There are available a track for Bachelor's Degree Programme in Science and Engineering and tracks for Master's Degree Programmes.

Applicants seeking their first study place towards a master’s degree are the primary candidates to be admitted as degree students through the Open University Track. The studies to be completed in the degree programme must genuinely produce new competence for the applicant and cannot be largely similar in course content as previously completed studies. Individuals who already hold a study right for degree programme at TUT cannot be accepted as a degree student from an open university track.

 

Open University Track for Bachelor´s Degree Programme in Science and Engineering

The studies form a package of the degree-level studies, consisting of mathematics, physics and information and communications technology. The track studies are first-year courses from the Bachelor´s Degree Programme in Science and Engineering, BSc (Tech). The aim is to facilitate the student’s access to a full degree programme at a later time.

There are no preliminary knowledge requirements for the track. However, the student must demonstrate sufficient English language skills when applying for a degree programme after the track.

You can complete the track studies within an academic year. You have to be able to study full-time from Monday to Friday.

  • The application period for the track is 18 June - 8 July 2018
  • Applications can be sent through the online application form

 

Once you have completed the track, you can apply for the Bachelor´s Degree Programme in Science and Engineering, BSc (Tech) in the spring of 2019 and begin your studies in the autumn of 2019.

Once admitted as a degree student, the credits you have completed in your track studies will be transferred as a part of your degree.
