Bachelor’s Degree Programmes in Inter­na­tional Business and Indus­trial Management (new, started in August 2020) are instructed completely in English. In addition, most of the other Bachelor’s Degree Programmes at Karelia offer courses and sometimes projects or practical training possi­bil­ities for exchange students. There is also a selection of joint and trans­dis­ci­plinary courses, suitable for all exchange students.

  • Please note that possi­bil­ities for super­vised projects and practical training are limited and not guaranteed to all inter­ested applicants.
  • Most degree programmes can accept only exchange students who are enrolled in a similar major in their own university.

The depart­mental inter­na­tional coordi­nators can be contacted in questions related to studies, projects and practical training.
