KIE-10006 Finnish 1, 3 cr
This course is only for those degree students, who have started their studies at TUT before the academic year 2015.
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.
