Courses in English at the University of Helsinki

Academic year and teaching periods

Please note

  • Your learning agreement is a preliminary plan for your studies in Helsinki, but it is not a registration for any courses nor a guarantee that you are accepted to those courses.
  • Learning agreement will be checked only after the faculty has received all application documents. Unfortunately we are not able to comment learning agreements during the application period.
  • As most of our courses in English are advanced level courses (MSc level), they might also have certain prerequisites, i.e. your previous studies need to provide relevant background for successful completion of the courses. The prerequisites are marked in the course description under “Preceding studies” or “Relations to other study units”. Kindly check the details in Course search. You are responsible for checking the prerequisites.
  • We advise you to choose courses of your own field of study.
  • Some courses (especially practical courses and laboratory courses) have a limited number of places and in these cases the degree students of the faculty have the priority.
  • Changes to your learning agreement can be made throughout the academic year.
  • English language courses offered by the Language Services are not open for exchange students.
  • Tandem Language Courses (ALICE)  is popular among exchange students.
  • Faculty cannot guarantee that courses organized by other faculties are available for exchange students of the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry.
