All Finnish universities are parties to the Flexible Study Rights Agreement (JOO), which provides degree students of Finnish universities the opportunity to include courses from other universities into their degrees. The right to complete courses in other Finnish universities is always granted for a fixed period (max. two years) and the right to study begins when the target university grants you the right to complete the JOO-studies. As of 2011, the University of Lapland only has a JOO - agreement with the target University of Oulu.

Students need to be enrolled and registered as attending students in their home universities in order to be eligible to apply. Flexible studies are free of charge.
