YOUR DEGREE IS COMPOSED OF MODULES
Your bachelor studies are composed of 15-credit modules (master studies have 10-credit modules) which define the learning outcomes of your studies. The learning outcomes describe competences you will learn and achieve during your studies. Part of the modules are compulsory, but some of the modules can be constructed by choosing studies from HAMK's other options or from other higher education institutions in Finland or abroad. In the modules you study in various ways, also online, and connected to real-life projects.
The core modules of your degree form the basis for professional competence i.e. core competence. It covers the competences you need to have in your professional field. Core modules also include work placement and a bachelor’s thesis and they are always completed in a real workplace or commissioned by the workplace.
In addition to core modules, you can choose profiling modules for your degree. This gives you an opportunity to build your expertise according to your own personal interests. The extent of profiling competence depends on the degree you will be completing.
During the studies you can build your own digital portfolio, which demonstrates your competences. With a digital portfolio you can show the evidence of your competences for example to your future employers.
