Implementation of studies and flexible learning tracks

As a full-time student, you participate in contact lessons that are mainly held on weekdays. Different learning methods and environments vary in your studies: contact lessons, learning tasks done independently, exams, teamwork, online studies, projects and practical training. The studies require plenty of independent work in the workshop facilities in the evenings and at weekends. You can study in a flexible way. At the beginning of your studies, you will prepare a personal study plan with the help of your studies coordinator. You will get support in the choices that are related to your studies, practical training, final thesis and internationalization. The objective is that you can plan your studies as well as possible according to your own life situation.

If you wish to accelerate your transition to work, you can choose the independent track. If you have earlier work experience in the field from the past 10 years, it is possible to integrate it as part of the degree. You can also choose studies from other teaching groups or do online studies. The independent track suits a goal-oriented student who is capable of working independently.

You can choose the blended track if you are employed in duties corresponding to your field of study. When choosing this track, you must agree on cooperation with your employer. You can complete courses at your workplace either completely or partially. The development of your knowhow requires getting familiar with the course content and showing your competence through learning tasks or competence demonstration. You always have to agree on the performance of a learning task with the course lecturer in advance.
