    See our curriculum

    A typical exchange student programme consists of 3-4 courses and a project course giving a total of 30 ECTS points per semester. All of our courses are described in detail in the above mentioned curriculum.

    Project work 

    All exchange students carry out a project. Project work is a way of incorporating real-life challenges into study programmes. You will typically be working in teams of three to five where you gather data, analyse and solve a problem, most of the time in cooperation with a company.

    Timetables

    The timetables are very dynamic, varying from semester to semester. Typically, a timetable will have one day free of lectures. During the semester, a course will have approx. 48 lectures (4 lectures a week). Three full weeks at the end of each semester are assigned to project work.

    Evaluation and exams 

    All subjects will be examined either during the course of study or at the end of the semester. Exams are both oral and written. Your performance will be assessed in several subjects by an examiner and a co-examiner, either external or internal. 

  • VIA University College expects you to have completed part of your degree course at your home university. In most cases, this will be the first two years of a B.Sc.  

    You must bring a laptop to every class at VIA. Your computer must be able to run MS Office and simulation programs – it is advisable to have a WIFI connection and be able to run Windows 7 or above as well as having a min. of 8 GB RAM.
