You, too, are an EduFutura student, a member of the EduFutura community of more than 40,000 students!

Cross-institutional studies at EduFutura means that you can be a student of Jamk while taking studies in the University of Jyväskylä and at Gradia. As a student of the University of Jyväskylä, you can study at Jamk and Gradia.

Make sure that the study unit can be included in your degree, either through proactive approval (included in the curriculum) or as optional studies.

Recognition of prior learning based on cross-institutional studies can be either replacing other studies or including the credits in the studies, depending on the content and level of the studies. If you apply for another institute of higher education, remember to report the completed study unit to their records, too.
