You can also study Finnish Survival Course along with any programme! In autumn 2019 it is also possible for health and social care students to pursue interdisciplinary project studies in Oulu DevLAB (Concept & Demo Creation, 30 ECTS cr, full term), or combine DevLAB partially (Concept Creation,15 ECTS cr, first part of autumn term) with suitable courses from the second part of the autumn term in one field-specific health and social care exchange study programme.

For more information on the studies and courses offered, visit the sections below to obtain details of the field-specific exchange study programmes. Each programme includes a choice of timetabled regular and online courses and, if applicable, a practical training course with limited seats and scope. All courses offered are instructed in English. N.B.! Only courses from one study programme and that have been matched with timetables can be taken. 

 

Exchange durations in health and social care

We prefer and recommend full-term exchanges with a workload/scope of approx. 30 ECTS cr per term in order to get the best possible mobility learning experience.

Autumn term 2019

Full-term exchange (P1&2) = 22.8. - 18.10. & 28.10. - 20.12., autumn vacation in week 43
In autumn 2019 it is possible to pursue full-term exchanges only, see the options below!


Spring term 2020

Full-term exchange (P3&4) = 3.1. - 28.2. & 9.3. - 29.5., winter vacation in week 10
