Bring Your Own Device

At Karelia UAS you will use your own computer for your studies. Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) means that you can utilise study materials, programmes and Karelia IC system at home regardless of date or time.This will make your studies more flexible, increase your infor­mation security and make your own study process more personal. 

You can start your studies with your existing device, e.g. computer or tablet. When proceeding, you should consider purchasing a computer which meets the require­ments of your studies. In some study fields you learn to use demanding profes­sional software which is available in defined facil­ities at your campus. 

The current Covid-19 situation has increased the amount of distance learning. Please make sure that your devices have access to a fast internet connection so that e.g. attending online lectures and working on teamwork assign­ments is not sluggish.
