How can I get 2 ECTS credits (Finland only)?

The ECTS credits are possible to people who have a Finnish social security number (=Personal identity number).


Please note that the registration process will be changed in the near future. Currently, students register for the course at The University of Helsinki Open University after completing it. If you complete the course and wish to have the credits entered in the University of Helsinki’s student records, you must register for the course at the Open University.

After completing the course you will be sent a link to the registration form within two weeks of course completion in the MOOC environment. The course credits will be registered within six weeks of registration. If you enter erroneous information when registering, we cannot register your credits. Please note that the course registration form is open for a pre-defined period only. If you have questions about registering at the Open University, please contact [email protected]


Please note that due to the large number of students taking the course, the registration process cannot be expedited.

If you want to apply for credits at your own university, here's the official course description.
