Open University – an opportunity for all

Hanken studenter
Hanken's Open University offers access to university-level courses in business and economics for everyone. This means that there are no formal requirements on prior degrees.

Basic-level courses are suited for everyone, while courses on intermediate and advanced level have requirements on previous studies of the subject.

Swedish is the main language of instruction, but a number of courses on intermediate and advanced level are given in English.

Open University studies are considered part time and therefore no general student benefits are granted.

Please note:

Contact teaching courses in class may require mandatory attendance. However, there are also to some extent online courses and self-study courses. The online/self-study courses' exams may require personal attendance.

Important: To access Hanken's user ID you need to identify yourself online through our self-service portal Opens in new window  with Finnish bank codes. The user ID is necessary for all studies (also online courses) at Hanken.
