Specialisation Studies

Specialisation studies are based on the need of expertise and its development in working life.

The studies are meant for those already in working life, those who already have a bachelor’s degree or those who have acquired such competence through other means. In most cases, specialisation education in Universities of Applied Sciences should be done after attaining a Bachelor's degree.

Specialisation education consists of a minimum of 30 ECTS credits. The Specialisation Studies are tailored so that you can attend them alongside full-time employment.
