Free-choice elective studies (UAS)

Exchange Studies: Nursing (Bachelor level)



Courses in this Exchange Study Programme are meant for Incoming Exchange Students who study nursing at their home institution. An exchange agreement with JAMK and the home institution including nursing as a study field is required. Students should contact their home institution’s International Office/Services to find out if an co-operation agreement exists.

The courses are part of our curricula for degree students and are taught in English. Studying is full-time and includes both contact lessons, online work, independent studying and/or group work. There is no specific exam period, exams are usually at the end of each course.

One ECTS credit is equivalent to about 27 hours of student work.

Practical training placements via this programme not possible at the moment. Exchange students can choose studies from the listed theory courses.
