Game Development Studies
Kajaani University of Applied Sciences has been offering Game Development studies under the Finnish-taught Bachelor's Degree in Business Information Technology (210 credits) for years. The second year of game development studies is taught completely in English, giving exchange students an opportunity to complete a variety of game development related studies on different fields of game development. In addition to the game development studies, some courses are offered in English in Data Center as well.
As of spring 2018 we offer studies in Game Development in modules to avoid timetable problems. Choose one of the three modules offered for 30 ECTS. Please note that many courses are offered as intensive weeks also.
For exchange students, we offer a beginner's course in Finnish: Finnish for Exchange Students (3 ECTS). It is highly recommended to study the basics of the local language during your exchange.
1 Finnish credit (cr) is equal to 1 ECTS credit. This equals to approx. 27 hours of a student's work. For one semester, the recommended amount of credits to choose is 30 ECTS.
