Forms of study
- The students (15) are selected separately only from those who have applied specifically to this group. The applicant’s field of study does not affect the selection.
The studies are entirely in English. The students must possess good oral and written English language skills.
The studies begin with an orientation and assessment period that takes place in Oulu. Based on this period, the students with the help of their tutors will prepare a personal study plan (PSP). The PSP will determine the progression and study path of the student.
The studies require commitment and taking responsibility for active participation in the group work. Studying requires good basic ICT skills, and the ability to actively work in different learning environments.
- Participation in the online programme requires the student to have appropriate IT equipment and network access for virtual study.
The studies are planned so that they can be completed in one academic year. However, depending on the personal study plan, students can use up to 3 years to finish the programme.
