Exchange students hosted by other University of Oulu faculties have to contact the Exchange Coordinator of the Faculty of Technology (see contact info below) to ask if it is possible to participate to the courses, but also they must have the previous knowledge required for the course in question.

After arrival, accepted exchange students are required to register on-line in the WebOodi system to all courses (and later, to the possible final course exams too). Course registration takes place via the WebOodi system once you have arrived in Oulu and received your University of Oulu login information. When registering to a course you will be able to find detailed information on teaching and schedules here under the Instruction and Examinations tabs.

Course levels: Individual course codes include information on the level of course. There are 3 different levels of courses. The levels are marked with a letter at the end of the course codes, see explanations below. In WebOodi course descriptions the level is indicated in ‘Type’ section. 

In academic year 2017-2018 there are intermediate (A) and advanced (S) level courses available in English. All basic (P) level courses are only available in Finnish, and therefore, are not available for exchange students.
