Personal computer/mobile device
Courses at Lahti UAS are delivered flexibly, utilising digital solutions. Various electronic platforms and materials are used in the learning process and course contents. Students connect to the learning environment using their own mobile devices, such as a laptop or a tablet with a keyboard. Lahti UAS provides a wireless network as well as support for using your own device. Limited amount of temporary devices can be arranged if necessary, however we recommend using your own device to ensure effective studying. The recommendations for the devices will be confirmed during the beginning of the studies, and therefore it is adviced not to buy a new device before the start of the term. However, if you already have a device, bring it with you when you start you studies, and we'll see whether you can manage with it.
We provide individual support for the exchange students with special needs. Our student exchange coordinators make the required arrangements together with student service experts.
