Open university studies to reduce the pressure put on the matriculation examination as the basis for student selections

Universities will soon select their students based on matriculation examination results. This will increase students’ pressure to perform well in the examination. The Alternative Path to University (Toinen reitti yliopistoon, TRY) project of eleven Finnish universities aims to reduce this pressure by creating alternative routes to degree studies. The development work starts officially with an initial project seminar at the University of Helsinki on Thursday, 1 November 2018.
