KIE-10016 Suomi-startti, 3 cr
Starting Finnish

Additional information

The group size is 26 students. When a course is over-subscribed, i.e. there are more sign-ups than places on the course, then we enrol the required number of students according to the following criteria:
1) students' position at TUT - students for whom the course is compulsory have priority,
2) the time of the sign-up.

Students on the sign-up / waiting list have to be present on the first day of the course to be sure of retaining their place.
