Most of the courses in these programs are avail­able for exchange students.

In addi­tion, Karelia offers two 60 ECTS “special­iza­tions” suit­able for 3rd or 4th-year Bach­e­lor-level students who have rele­vant back­ground studies (e.g. engi­neer­ing, busi­ness, manage­ment, forestry, envi­ron­men­tal sciences). It is also possi­ble to complete only the Autumn semes­ter modules (30 ECTS) of the special­iza­tions. The studies are orga­nized jointly by Karelia and other part­ners in INVEST Euro­pean Univer­sity Alliance:

Most of the other Bachelor’s Degree Programmes at Karelia also offer courses and some­times projects or prac­ti­cal train­ing possi­bil­i­ties for exchange students. Joint and trans­dis­ci­pli­nary courses are 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 programs can accept only exchange students who are enrolled in a similar major at their own univer­sity.

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