This curriculum is for open UAS students. The curriculum includes first year studies and Basic Studies Common To All In SEAMK (Open UAS Path Studies, Degree Programme in Elderly Care). There is also some personal study planning in the open university's path studies.

In the Degree Programme in Elderly Care the focus is on ensuring that students become prepared and committed to the promotion of a good life for older people on the level of the individual, communities, organizations and also on the level of society. Their work with individual clients and groups involves prevention, support, care, rehabilitation and promotion of the old person’s participation in various settings of elderly care and services. Important areas in the degree programme are the assessment of aged clients' well-being, functional capacity and need for support and the well-planned use of various gerontological care and nursing interventions and social work methods to promote the client’s well-being and function. The degree programme also emphasises skills required in the organization of individualized services, such as the assessment of service needs; case management; organisation of service pathways and multi-professional services for elderly clients, and supporting the clients’ families. On the level of service organisations, the focus is on the supervision of the service provision, first-level management and on the development of human resources and services. On the level of society, the emphasis is on the evaluation and development of the service provision systems and on influencing decision-making and elderly policies in society.
