Oulu UAS prefers and recommends full-term exchanges with a workload/scope of approx. 30 ECTS cr per term in order to get the best possible exchange learning experience.
Each term consists of two periods with a short vacation in between.

Autumn term: P1 (23.8. - 19.10.) and P2 (29.10. - 21.12.)
Spring term: P3 (3.1. - 1.3.) and P4 (11.3. - 31.5.)

N.B.! Students from designated partners with 3-month Erasmus+ Inter-Institutional Agreements may also come for a short-term exchange in spring only (!). Short-term exchanges may take place either in the first part of the spring semester (3.1.-4.4.) or in the latter part (1.3.-31.5.), depending also on the programme. Only certain courses can be chosen for short-term exchanges. Check your eligibility for a short-term exchange from your home university and Oulu UAS before applying.

All courses listed are instructed in English. N.B.! Only courses from one study programme and path can be taken due to timetabling constraints.
