Free-choice Studies

The purpose of the free-choice studies is to expand and deepen students’ professional knowledge. These studies can be selected from an array provided by Vaasan ammattikorkeakoulu (VAMK), University of Applied Sciences, or from the studies provided by other universities. Before enrolment, check that you do not choose courses overlapping with your previously completed courses.

Enrolment takes place through the Peppi system, unless otherwise indicated.

Enrollments for free choice studies arranged by VAMK
In the enrolment the students, who have the highest number of credit points, have priority. Exception: Free choice studies directed to students in specific degree program.
