Enrolling online or at the office

  • You must pay the course fee to attend the course. After completing the payment, you will receive a confirmation message, which you must bring to the first lesson and present, if requested.
  • You may pay online via Paytrail using a Finnish online bank or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Visa Electron, Eurocard and Maestro) or at the office using the aforementioned cards. The Summer University does not accept cash.
  • If the course is full, you may still enrol for and be placed on the waiting list. In this case, the Summer University office will contact you if a place on the course becomes available. The teachers do not have the authority to accept enrolments from the waiting list.
  • You cannot attend the course, unless you have paid the course fee and received the confirmation message. Please note that the course fee covers only the specific course and the specific group the student has enrolled for. If an individual participates in a course without enrolling, they will be charged the course fee, billing and administrative costs (40€).

  • The enrolment does not expire if you do not pay the course fee. Course fees are collectible (Law 706/2007).
  • Please check the course dates online, as there are no reminder messages.
