All the students can choose and complete elective studies, usually from 5 to 10 ECTS credits depending on the degree programme in question. Elective studies provide the students with the opportunity to individually broaden and deepen professional competence and personal development. Elective studies can be selected from

  • the elective courses of one’s own unit / degree programme
  • the offering of other degree programmes
  • other universities of applied sciences, universities or other higher education institutions.

The elective studies must consist of master's level courses. Students must have their elective courses and the respective credits accepted by the head of programme in advance, if these courses are not selected from the elective studies of JAMK, after which they can be included in the Personal Learning Plan (PLP).
