In addition, most of the other Bachelor’s Degree Programmes at Karelia offer courses and sometimes projects or practical training possi­bil­ities for exchange students. There is also a selection of joint and trans­dis­ci­plinary courses, suitable for all exchange students.
New: Sustainable Commu­nities in Energy Transition (60 ECTS) is a new module suitable for 3rd or 4th-year B.Sc. students of engineering, environ­mental sciences, business or management. The studies are organized jointly by Karelia and other partners in INVEST European University Alliance.
