How to apply?

  1. Students of Asia Network’s member universities

Fill in the application form. Students who are actively enrolled in a member university of the Asia Network can take the courses free of charge. This includes both degree students and exchange students.

The members of the Finnish University Network for Asian Studies are:

  • University of Turku (UTU Students can sign up in UTUPeppi!)
  • University of Jyväskylä
  • Tampere University

Students from the following universities of applied sciences can also take part in Asianet courses free of charge because of local bilateral institutional agreements.

Tampere University of Applied Sciences (through the agreement with Tampere University)
JAMK University of Applied Sciences (through the agreement with University of Jyväskylä)

  1. As an external self-paying student of the Asia Network (University of Turku).

You can apply for the courses as an external self-paying student by paying a fee of 250 euros for the minor study right (up to 25 ECTS). After successful completion of courses, you will receive study credits. To do this, you must first fill the Asia Network application form and the application form for UTU non-degree studies. Once you have received the acceptance letter, pay the study fee before the courses start in order to receive the registration codes for the courses.

For advanced courses, sufficient background knowledge of the course subjects is required. Self-paid students must demonstrate that they have the necessary background knowledge, either through studies or work experience.


Once your application has been processed, you will receive a message about the decision. This will come a few weeks after the application period has ended. If you are accepted to the course, you will receive a welcoming email on the first day of each course, and gain access to the course site in the Moodle. The welcome email comes to the address you have given in the application form. It may go to the spam or offers-folder of your email (at least Gmail tends to do it), so check those folders too.

Before applying to a course, please check with your own institution whether you can include the course in your degree.

UTU Students can  also sign up to each course in UTUPeppi!
