Note on Free Choice Studies

The amount of free choice studies is 18 credit points for foreign students and 24 for Finnish students. This is due to the differences in language studies. Students whose mother tongue is Finnish and who have completed Finnish upper secondary education or the Finnish Matriculation examination have language and communication studies for 12 credit points. Foreign students have language and communication studies for 18 credit points.

For Finnish students it is strongly recommended that they take additional foreign language studies to cover the difference of 6 credit points compared to foreign students' language studies.

Exchange semester

Students with Finnish educational background studying in the full-time day programme must include either an exchange study period or work placement abroad in their degree studies. This regulation applies to the students who begin their studies in Autumn 2013 or after.

The wide network of international partner institutions all over the world helps all degree students to find a suitable university for the exchange semester.
