Languages and Communication
Versatile language and communication skills are an important part of professional competence.
The Languages and Communication section operates within the Extension School (TOPIK) of the University of Oulu. We provide language and communication courses as part of the degree programmes of the University. In addition, we offer language training for graduate students, staff and for people in working life. We continuously develop our courses in co-operation with the faculties and other interest groups. Our courses are tailored to the needs of working life and enhance the international prospects of our students.
We offer language and communication courses in eight different languages: Finnish, Finnish for foreigners, Swedish, English, Japanese, Chinese, French, German and Russian. In addition, courses in Arabic, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese are offered as open university studies organised by the Summer University (Kesäyliopisto).
Our teachers would be pleased to advise and guide you on matters related to language and communication studies, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
