Cross-Institutional Studies for Finnish Higher Education Students

Cross-institutional studies give you an opportunity to complete studies in another domestic higher education institution. Study flexibly and benefit of versatile learning opportunities from other higher education institutions as well!

What are Cross-institutional studies?

Cross-institutional studies give you a possibility to expand your learning opportunities by completing studies in another domestic higher education institution and to include them in your own degree.

In order to complete cross-institutional studies, you must have a valid study right at your home institution, and you must be registered as a attending student. Before enrolling, contact your study advisor to find out the available options for you and to approve the studies as part of your current studies at your home institution.

Cross-institutional studies are along with degree students, available for pathway students of open university of applied sciences as well as for incoming exchange students. The target group may however vary between offerings.

The right to study of cross-institutional studies and the study offering are based on agreements between higher education institutions. You will get a temporary study right at the destination institution for completing the cross-institutional studies you have been accepted to.
