Courses for exchange students

ECTS stands for European Credit Transfer System and is a part of the Erasmus EU programme for mobility of university students. ECTS is a tool for facilitating academic recognition between countries, which is one of the main aims of the Erasmus programme.

ECTS is based on the principle of mutual trust and confidence between the participating institutions. The key elements of ECTS are information (on the institution and on courses available), agreement (between the home and host institution, and with the student), and the transfer of credits. One fulltime semester equals 30 ECTS credits.

Only undergraduate students can apply for exchange. Second year students should apply for exchange during Spring semesters*, and third year students during Fall semesters. Please note that only the Fine Arts program has exchange possibilities on the Master level.

Course offerings
You will NOT be able to choose courses freely. You will follow the program for the semester you have been admitted to. At some departments there might be some flexibility for exchange students. Please note that there is no guarantee that the courses listed in the course catalogues will be given. Changes may occur. If for example there are too few students applying for the course the department might decide not to give the course. If you have chosen a course which later was decided not to be given we will try to find another suitable course for you. For more information on course offerings and processes for course selections, please click on the program you wish to apply to, see listing below. You can also contact the administrative officers and education coordinators for each program.

All courses run on fulltime basis (40 hrs/week) if not stated differently.


* = The Textile and Interior Architecture and Furniture Design Bachelor programs can't admit exchange students during Spring semesters.
