    Let us know if you have to be Finnish to actually collect the ECTS. That seems to be a common theme amongst Finnish universities that offer free ECTS.

    Usually, an open university in Finland is meant to be continued at the same university. But I learn for myself, it is better than MOOC because contains ECTS (even though I didn't use or transfer it anywhere), because ECTS usually means it is more rigorous and it is better proof than just MOOC certificates like Coursera.

    I think you don't have to be Finnish, but you need to have a Finnish ID card/social security number. I've seen some that also accept Estonian ID credentials, which you might be able to get via the Estonian e-residency process. But now I can't find the page that talked about using Estonian credentials.

    I saw one thing one time talking about how there's supposed to be some sort of treaty between Finland and the US to accept each other's SS #s. But I don't know if it applies to something like this.

    No you don’t need any Finnish credentials. I am from Singapore and they accepted me without questions. I have earned 25 ECTS so far
