International Semester at Arts Academy

The Arts Academy provides a wide range of Bachelor of Arts Programme (240 ECTS) in the field of arts and media. A central and significant feature is the multi-disciplinary structure, which allows interaction between subjects and presents creative potential for the cross-fertilisation of ideas between programmes. Concentration on project-based studies allows us to have international students in most of the workshops, since a teacher can give guidance and teaching in both languages simultaneously (English and Finnish). Most of the courses can be arranged in a flexible way in English. In addition to courses provided by Arts Academy students are expected to take the following general courses:
•    Finnish for Foreigners (3 ECTS)
•    GetFinternational (3 ECTS)
•    Cultural Experiences (3 ECTS)

During an exchange period of 3 months, a student may complete min. 20 ECTS. During an exchange period of a whole semester, a student may complete min. 30 ECTS.
