Tuition fees and cancellation

The tuition fee is €15 per one ECTS credit. Larger packages often have a set discount price, which can bring the price per credit below €15. Some Open UAS studies may also be offered free of charge. The tuition fee is always mentioned in the description of the studies in the online store. Make sure you check the final price when you enrol.

The tuition fee is generally paid online upon registration. In larger competence and semester packages it may also be possible to choose billing as a payment method. The payment period for the invoices is 14 days from the time of enrolment.

Other costs

In addition to tuition fees, some courses may involve other costs for materials, supplies, etc. Any additional costs are specified in the study module’s description in the online store. They are not included in the tuition fee and are paid separately.


You have the right to cancel your course enrolment. Cancellation should always be done through the link found in the confirmation message you have received after registration. If the link does not work, cancellation must be made in writing to the Open UAS Study Office.

Diak reserves the right to timetable changes and lecturer substitutions as well as course cancellations, for example, due to a low number of registrations.

Terms of cancellation

If you cancel your enrolment at least 14 days prior to the beginning of your studies, you are eligible for a refund of the tuition fees already paid. We will send you instructions for sending us your bank account details and your tuition fees will be refunded to your account within 14 days (please note that during the Summer and Christmas breaks refunds may be delayed). If you have chosen billing as a payment method, you can leave your open invoices unpaid.

If you cancel your enrolment less than 14 days prior to the beginning of studies, we will charge you the full tuition fee. If you have chosen billing as a payment method, cancellation of enrolment will not invalidate any unpaid invoices.

If you do not cancel your enrolment and do not attend the course, or you decide to drop out in the middle of your studies, you will be charged the full tuition fee.

The collection of the tuition fees may be waived in whole or in part if

  • you cancel or drop out due to an illness which substantially affects your ability to study, the tuition fee or cancellation charge may be waived fully. 
  • you have received a study place in open UAS studies and you are selected in Diak as a degree student before you have started your studies in the open UAS.
  • you have received a study place in the open UAS semester module and you are selected to another Finnish higher education institution as a degree student before you have started your open UAS studies in Diak.

In all of these cases, you must contact the Open UAS Study Office immediately if you wish to request a waiver of the tuition fee collection. Be prepared to provide Diak with either a medical certificate indicating inability to study or a certificate of acceptance as a student issued by the higher education institution in question.
