Karelia has three Bachelor’s Degree Programmes that are instructed fully in English: Inter­na­tional Business, Indus­trial Management, and Infor­mation and Commu­ni­cation Technology (new, starts in Autumn 2023). 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 studies of the special­iza­tions (30 ECTS). 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.
