Enrollment for Averko online studies is three (3) times a year, timetables for study rounds are available here. Enrollment is done on a electronic enrollment form.
Online studies are conducted in Centria’s Itslearning study environment and courses have a limited participant intake. Participation in studies can be cancelled free of charge within 3 weeks of the starting day.
Students are immediately notified in case of courses being cancelled as soon as the official enrollment time ends. If the course starts as stated, students are contacted closer to the starting date (approx. a week before studies begin).
At the moment, the study fee for open UAS studies is 10€ / ECTS credit. The studies are invoiced after the three-week cancellation period, calculated from the start of the studies. Dropping out or not completing studies does not entitle you to a refund or cancellation of the invoice.
Open UAS study fees are based on enrollment. You can cancel participation to studies free of charge during the three (3) weeks cancellation time by simply informing it to averko(a)centria.fi.
If you are completing a degree in a Finnish secondary school, Centria UAS studies are free of charge and offered to you as väylä studies.
