‣ Notes

1-Links to our courses in English are listed on www.utu.fi/en/studying/exchange-students/courses/Pages/Learning-Agreement.aspx. 2-Exchange students can take courses from different faculties quite freely if they have previous knowledge in the subject area. Students can work on their theses or participate in research projects in Turku, but 50 % of the work load (excluding PhD students) must be courses and the student must find the supervisor by him-/herself. Studies at the Faculties of Medicine, Law and Education and at the Turku School of Economics are not available for students who are not majoring in these subjects. 3-Housing situation in Turku in the Academic Year 2016-2017 is difficult. All the possibilities we know are listed on our web page: http://www.utu.fi/en/studying/info-accepted/housing/Pages/Exchange-Students.aspx. Turku doesn’t recommend anyone to arrive to Turku without having a place to stay. The companies which offer housing for exchange students (TYS, Retrodorm and TVT) are independent from the University of Turku. This means that we can’t unfortunately affect their deadlines or procedures. Any questions concerning housing applications are to be sent to the housing providers directly.
