Studies for Exchange Students
UEF offers a lot of courses for the exchange students that can be completed entirely in English. These studies are offered for the incoming exchange students and the visiting students on both campuses in Joensuu and in Kuopio.
The incoming exchange students are relatively free to choose courses from their own field of study as well as from other related fields. When choosing courses, remember to check when the course takes place, if it is taught in English, and if you meet the possible prerequisites of the course. In most cases you are welcome to choose the Master's courses even if you have not quite yet completed your Bachelor's degree.
Please note that the courses can be chosen from one campus only because the distance between the campuses is 150 kilometres (two hours).
