How to study Climate University courses?

Climate University materials are open and free to study any time anywhere. The courses have an opportunity to download a certificate in the end of the material, after completing the quizzes. You can access the course materials via the Climate University website.

To get study points (ECTS) you need to register to a course organized by a higher education institution (HEI). Climate University courses are currently given by several HEIs in Finland and also internationally. You find the course codes under each course site at the Climate University website. Most of the courses are also open via open university, for anyone to study.  List of open registrations is collected to the Climate University blog in the beginning of the Autumn and Spring terms.


For students of the Climate University network HEIs

Please check first if your HEI is part of the Climate University. Partnering HEIs have a cross-study agreement that allows student to take courses from other partnering HEIs for free. Registration to the cross-studies is offered by the organizing institution and linked to CU blog when active. Please note that you need to take care of the transfer of the credits to your home institution by yourself.


For other students

Students of other HEIs or continuous learning can take the courses via open universities. Links to active registrations are collected to the CU blog.


For international students

Currently, open universities in Finland can recognize only students with Finnish ID or who can come to Finland to be identified. We are working on different collaboration methods to solve the issue. Meanwhile, you are welcome to study the open educational materials at your own pace.


For teachers

Climate University materials are free to use in your teaching. If you want to order a course area for your course or join the Climate University teacher network, please leave a message here. Our network supports teachers by organizing teacher meetings to share the best practices from the courses and to discuss the future development steps.
