All the Finnish universities organize open university courses. Open universities are a part of the Finnish adult education system and they offer every adult an opportunity to participate in education, which follows the curricula of the Universities. Each open university provides teaching on its own and in cooperation with such educational institutions as adult education centres, folk high schools, community colleges and summer universities. Every year, over 70,000 people studies at the Finnish open universities – almost 12,000 of them at the UEF Open University.
Open university education is part of the University of Eastern Finland’s continuous learning package.
