Academic education planning implemented by the Oulu Southern Institute comprises making preliminary reports and reports on educational needs together in cooperation with the relevant actors (i.a. enterprises, department of the chamber of commerce, enterprise organizations). Furthermore, it comprises the contents planning of the education programmes in cooperation with faculties and university departments as well as the applying for funding to the education projects. Educational projects are implemented as separate projects in cooperation with the university department or faculty responsible for the teaching and contents of the examination.
The institute participates in the development of the educational pathway of the Oulu South Centre for Higher Education Institutions network. The educational pathway enables the students' participation in the joint research and development activity of different education organizations and the transfer in a flexible way from one education level to another.
