The study plans for those commencing their studies in autumn 2021 will be updated. This means that some changes to the course offerings for first year students will be made next academic year. This message concerns you if you have not completed all the compulsory first year courses.

The content in the new study units are not exactly identical with the old courses but the replacement of courses looks like this:

Old course - New study unit

  • Introduction to Academic Studies will be replaced by Technology and Learning (P1)
  • Arcada 360 will be replaced by Teamwork and Innovation (P2)
  • Intercultural Business will be replaced by Ethical and Sustainable Societal Development  (P3 & P4)
  • Communication and Public Speaking will be replaced by Introduction to Research Methodology (P4)

You have all received an e-mail about this matter yesterday (April 15th) as well. 

Please contact me if you have failed a course and are unsure of which study unit to complete instead.


Best regards,


Amanuensis at the Department
