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.
