The main difference between the Finnish system of study and study systems of some other countries is that individual courses vary in length and start and end at various times during the semester. Therefore, there is no fixed exam period at the end of the semester and exams are simply held after the course ends.
Also, some courses take place in the form of a book exam, which means that there are no lectures at all and the exam is based on an independent study of a set of books. Otherwise the Finnish system is fairly similar to other systems; a typical course consists of a series of lectures or seminars and you complete it either by sitting an exam or by writing an essay (or passing an assignment of another type). Courses for students in the Faculty of Art and Design consist mainly of seminars, workshops and studiowork.
Number of places available: 4 students, max 10 months
