ULapland offers a wide variety of courses in English eventhough the main language of teaching is Finnish. For the convenience of the exchange students, the Faculties and the Language Centre compiles summaries of the courses offered in English.
1. Get acquainted with ULapland study offer in English and prepare a study plan
- Consult our course overview and discuss your choices with your home coordinator.
- Choose the courses you wish to take during your exchange stay at ULapland.
- We recommend applying for some extra courses, in case some courses are not available or doable. Sometimes timetables of the chosen courses might overlap or you might not be qualified for a certain course.
- ULapland requires minimum 25 ECTS credits of studies per semester unless otherwise agreed with the student’s home institution.
The study offer is published usually in April for the coming academic year and it will be uploaded in this section when ready. The timetables will be available in the beginning of August in Peppi. If you are planning your studies before the study offer is published - don't worry, just orient with the previous year's study offer. It seldom changes radically.
