Exchange students are recommended to complete approx. 5 ECTS per exchange month (totaling 30 ECTS per semester).

Students applying to this Exchange Study Programme should choose courses in their study plan mainly from this course offering. In addition to the professional studies, students can complement their studies by choosing language and communication courses (see Exchange Studies: Languages and Communication offering for all Exchange Students)

If students find courses suitable to their study background also in other Exchange Study Programmes at Jamk (for example from "Exchange studies: Service Business focus on Sustainable Gastronomy" offering), they may propose 1-2 courses per semester in their study plan. However, enrolment for them is not guaranteed.

Further Information

- Autumn semester: from the end of August towards the end of December
- Spring semester: from the beginning of February towards the end of May/the end of June (usually semester ends by end of May, exchanges last until June only if student decides to enrol for summer studies)

Course Enrolment:
Course enrolments and possible changes to the study plan are done after arriving to Jamk. Each course has a limited number of places for exchange students and thus, some students may not get in to their preferred courses and have to change their course choices and enrolment after arrival.

Tailor-made study packages outside of exchange programmes:
There might be some separately agreed and tailored study packages for certain student groups (usually fees apply). In case of the packages courses in this Exchange Study Programme, the regular exchange student nomination/application process and support services do not apply. The receiving programme of Jamk shall co-ordinate the package from beginning to end. Please contact the study package liaison for further information.


Courses in this Exchange Study Programme are meant for Incoming Exchange Students who study Tourism or related study fields at their home institution. An exchange agreement with Jamk and the home institution 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.
