Published: 21 December 2016 at 12:45

The International Services of Oulu University of Applied Sciences provides Finnish Survival Courses for incoming exchange students and trainees.

The course will consist of basics of Finnish language and culture. See the course description in the ECTS Information Package.

Course dates

In the spring term 2015 there will be three (3) courses (providing that there are enough participants). Contents of all of them will be the same. The courses will start from the very basics and therefore earlier Finnish skills are not needed for participation.

Course F: 12.1. – 6.4.2017 on Thursdays at 17:00 – 19:30, except on Wed 22.2. (not Thu 23.2.).

The courses will be held in Oulu UAS Kontinkangas Campus, Kiviharjuntie 4, FI-90220 Oulu. Contents of all the courses will be the same. Venue: Louhi Building, lecture room D2052.


There is a maximum of 30 student places on each course. Places will be filled in the order of registration. If the course of your primary choice is already fully booked, please register for another one. Priority is given to Erasmus students and trainees.

Registrations should be completed through an online form.
