What is CampusOnline.fi?

CampusOnline.fi offers the selection of online courses by more than twenty Finnish universities of applied sciences. The portal allows students to choose courses offered by other universities of applied sciences and include them in their degree, free of charge.

Registering CampusOnline.fi courses

All universities of applied sciences may make any courses they want available through the CampusOnline.fi portal. These courses must be implemented completely online.

Teacher, if you are interested in uploading your online implementation to CampusOnline, follow these steps: 1. Discuss the matter with your supervisor and make sure that the course fits your work plan and has the required resources. 2. Contact the contact person at your university of applied sciences; any contact with the portal will go though them.


Through CampusOnline.fi, you can carry out studies year-round. There are three semesters:
  • Spring, supply of courses released and enrolment open in November
  • Summer, supply of courses released and enrolment open in March
  • Autumn, supply of courses released and enrolment open in August–September
In addition, Non-stop courses are available year-round and across semesters.
The most popular courses fill up quickly.

Target audience

The courses are free of charge for degree students (Bachelor’s degree/Master’s degree) and exchange students at universities of applied sciences and for path students at Open UAS. Other Open UAS students pay a fee determined by the university of applied science that offers the course in question.

Good to Know!

The portal contains basic information on the courses. Each course has a link to the website of the UAS in question, where you can find more specific information on the implementation and enrol on the course.

Cross-studying FAQ

What is cross-studying?

In the eAMK project, cross-studying refers to joint study paths, exchanging of course packages, joint implementation and exchanges. On joint study paths, students have the opportunity to choose studies in the same field of study from another university of applied sciences as part of their study path, based on their PLP. Exchanging course packages means that a university of applied sciences provides the courses agreed upon on behalf of or for the benefit of another university of applied sciences, which in turn does not have to implement the course agreed upon. In the third form of cross-studying, i.e. joint implementation, a network of universities of applied sciences jointly implements a course or exchanges them. Entrepreneurship is a typical competence area in which these types of implementations are carried out.

Can eAMK also provide a platform for other joint online studies?

The goal of the eAMK project is for universities of applied sciences to provide a joint, year-round offering of courses. The project will not develop a joint platform or learning environment. Instead, the goal is to develop an offering of courses that each educational institution is able to offer in its own environment and on its own platforms. Together with the development of cross-studying, a solution is being developed to allow information on study attainments to be transmitted automatically between universities of applied sciences, independent of any particular system.Watch this video for more information.

What are the principles for implementing cross-studying in eAMK?

The principles for cross-studying were approved in a meeting of the Rectors' Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (Arene) on 4 October 2017. The principles are available in the publication eAMK ristiinopiskelun periaatteet (in Finnish) in the Digipölytys blog.
