Students select and complete 10-15 ECTS credits of elective studies.

Elective studies provide students an individual opportunity to extend and advance their 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
  • the offering of the interdisciplinary elective courses of JAMK
  • other universities of applied sciences, universities or other higher education institutions, for example CampusOnline.fi.

The elective studies must consist of at least bachelor’s level courses. The career tutor can recommend courses which are closely related to the professional field. Students must have their elective courses and the respective credits accepted by the career tutor in advance, if these courses are not selected from the elective studies of JAMK, after which they can be included in personal learning plan (PLP).

See instructions on cross-institutional opportunities in the Elmo Student (login required).

You can freely choose elective studies from six different themes:

Some elective courses are implemented online. In addition, some elective courses are offered in the summer. Please, see the page of summer studies.
