General studies

Students must complete 5 credits of general studies. The general studies form an orientation to the university studies in Finland and particularly to the LET programme. The general studies are divided into language studies (2 credits) and communication and orientation studies (3 credits).

Students must complete 2 credits of language studies:

  • Foreign students must complete the Survival Finnish Course (code 405518Y). If they have already completed the Survival Finnish course or an equivalent Finnish course, or already have basic skills in Finnish, they can choose a more advanced level Finnish course (min. 2 credits) or a course in another language (min. 2 credits) from among the courses offered by the Languages and Communication Unit at the University.
  • Finnish citizens must complete the Swedish language course (offered by the Language Centre at the university, code 901001Y). If they have already completed an equivalent course as a part of their Bachelor’s degree, they must choose a min.  2 credits of other language studies from among the courses offered by the Languages and Communication Unit at the University. (If the student’s previous studies have not included studies in Swedish, they can be exempted from these studies by application to the faculty.)
