Languages and Communication

Dear student,

Studying languages is part of your degree and an investment in the future. We offer language courses to the degree students of the University of Oulu in all faculties. These languages are both domestic languages in Finland (Finnish and Swedish), English, German, Japanese, French, Russian and Finnish language and culture -courses. They are the most important courses for exchange students and international students of the University of Oulu.

At the Open University and Summer University (Pohjois-Pohjanmaan kesäyliopisto) you can study Chinese, Arabic, Spanish, Italian and Portugese as well as some degree courses in Finnish, Swedish and English.

Welcome to study languages with us! On these pages you can find more information.

Grâce aux langues, on est chez soi n´importe où.​ With languages, you are at home anywhere".
