Student exchange during coronavirus pandemic

Student exchange is currently possible, taking into account travel restrictions.

As a rule, studying at the University of Oulu will continue remotely until the end of the autumn term. Students have been instructed to agree on the completion methods with persons responsible for their courses. Exchange students’ study right in the University of Oulu will be valid according to the earlier decision even if the student would return to the home country.

International student exchange will take place normally in spring 2021. The studies will take place on campus and/or remotely. Incoming students are required to undertake a COVID-19 test or quarantine, and outgoing students are recommended to take out a comprehensive insurance policy and possibly avoid going to certain countries.  This may concern for example the countries in which the virus spreads actively or the incidence of COVID-19 is significantly higher than in Finland.
