The unforgettable exchange experience

Whether for a semester or a year, the exchange students coming to LUT have a proud history of enjoying themselves. In addition to educational pursuits, there are plenty of other things going on too.

The international student's community is strong and there are cultural theme nights, parties and all sorts of get-togethers to make sure that everybody has a good time. For instance, the Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is very active in Lappeenranta.

LUT offers a wide variety of courses taught in English in the fields of business and technology. Most of the courses are intended for Master's level or final year Bachelor students, but there are also choices available for those in their Bachelor studies. The appreciated International Business and Technology Management (IBTM) programme offers a carefully planned package of business and management studies. And in the field of engineering, we offer studies in seven different fields of technology.

At LUT, the intake for exchange students is about 220 students a year. Our exchange students come from approximately 200 partner universities of LUT through programmes such as Erasmus and Nordplus. There are also plenty of bilateral agreements between universities and some free movers in the bunch, as well. Application takes place twice a year and you can choose to spend either a full academic year or one semester with us.
