Intensive Courses

Many of Metropolia’s degree programmes also organise intensive courses in which students and/or staff from partner institutions join Metropolia for an intensive international programme. These programmes are usually funded by project funding of e.g. Erasmus+ and Nordplus.

Some intensive programmes are multidisciplinary, and enable students from different degree programmes to participate. Hundreds of students have had the chance to take part in these versatile programmes. More information can be obtained from the degree programmes.
