The idea of path studies is to study first year of degree studies amongst degree students as a full member of the group. The aim is to complete a certain amount of credits during that first year. Path studies do not result in graduation.
Your generosity encourages me not only to continue to be hopeful through difficult times of not having enough to sponsor my education, but inspired me to continue on my academic path as I hope to be well educated. When I left the polytechnic in 2006, I knew in my heart that one day I had to go back and acquire more knowledge, and because of your Open University program I am one step closer to actualizing it. Finnish Universities are good, but South Eastern Finland University of Applied Science is the best.”
