The competence-based curricula of Savonia consist of two parts: the general information and the specific contents of course descriptions. The general part includes the basis of education, competence standards, structure of studies, development of expertise, methods of implementation and table of courses. You can access the specific contents, ie course descriptions, by clicking on the course codes on the course table. It is good to study your degree programme's curriculum before starting your studies. You can find it below.

The curriculum comes with a course plan, which describes in more detail what a student is required to do to pass the course. Each lecturer presents a course plan when his/her course starts and uploads the plan on the learning environment Moodle. In addition to the requirements, the course plan informs the contents, objectives, timing, extent and student workload, assessment criteria and the plan for processing course feedback given by the students.
