Exchange Studies: Professional Teacher Education



Courses in this Exchange Study Programme are meant for Incoming Exchange Students who study Professional Teacher Education or related study field at their home institution. An exchange agreement with JAMK and the home institution including Professional Teacher Education 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 and are taught in English. One ECTS credit is equivalent to about 27 hours of student work.

- Studying is part-time and mostly independent/self-directed work/online courses outside the classroom setting. Courses might have contact lesson only at the beginning of the course. There is no specific exam period, exams/assignments are completed during the course.
- Exchanges possible only in the spring semester

Practical training placements via this programme not possible at the moment. Exchange students can choose studies from the listed theory courses.
Most of the course offering is tailored for each student, contact the academic advisor of the School of Professional Teacher Education for further information.
