All Finnish universities are parties to the Flexible Study Rights Agreement (JOO), which provides graduate and post-graduate students of Finnish universities the opportunity to include courses from other universities into their degrees.
You need to be enrolled and registered as attending student in Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) in order to be eligible to apply for flexible study rights and to complete studies in another university.
LUT uses the electronic Joopas Application System, as do other universities with the exception of the Academy of Fine Arts, the University of Lapland and, the Theatre Academy, University of Jyväskylä and University of Oulu. The system can be accessed at http://haku.joopas.fi with your LUT username and password.
For further information on LUT instructions regarding the home university see the Flexible Study Service Joopas.
Please note that the application must be well-grounded and the courses must be appropriate for the student's LUT degree without equivalents in the LUT curriculum.
Flexible studies are free of charge for the students.
The course database in Joopas provides information on courses and studies offered by universities and university networks.
