Course Selection

Please read the instructions below thoroughly before you start selecting your courses in Mobility-Online so that you do not miss any important information.

Full-time study load

Our academic year consists of 2 semesters (autumn semester and spring semester). Each semester is divided into 2 study periods. There are no breaks/holidays between the study periods.

A full-time study load per semester is equal to 30 credits (equivalent to approximately 4 courses for a whole semester). As each semester is divided into two study periods, students should consequently study around 15 credits in each study period in order to achieve a balanced division of credits throughout the whole semester. It is important to spread the courses throughout the semester and not have all courses start at the same time, so make sure to check the course dates and to achieve a balanced division of credits between the two study periods.

The study periods are specified as follows:

Autumn semester

Study period 1 runs from August to mid-October. Select approximately 15 credits (approximately 2 courses).

Study period 2 runs from mid-October to December/January*. Select approximately 15 credits (approximately 2 courses).

*End date varies between the JU schools, see academic calendar

Spring semester

Study period 1 runs from January to end of March. Select approximately 15 credits (approximately 2 courses).

Study period 2 runs from end of March to the beginning of June. Select approximately 15 credits (approximately 2 courses).

In the online application you will find information about the study level for each course. Bachelor students may only select bachelor-level courses. Master students may select courses from both the bachelor-level and master-level.

Course schedules

The course schedules are available at the JU website approximately 3 weeks before each study period starts. This means that you won’t know in advance if there will be clashes in the schedules, but it does occasionally happen. If you notice that the courses you have chosen will have too many class clashes (i.e., more than 3 clashes), you will be able to make the necessary changes during the introduction week.

Course changes

Please make sure to have your courses confirmed by your home university before uploading the JU Course Confirmation. We only allow changes in courses due to cancellation of a course or too many clashes in the schedules. We don't have an add/drop period upon arrival. There will be a "Course confirmation meeting" during the introduction week where you need to be present and confirm your courses.

Course updates

There may be changes regarding the courses offered, sometimes new courses are added, some courses are cancelled etc. Check the JU website for the updated list of courses.

Maximum number of students

Please note that for certain courses there are limitations regarding the maximum number of students allowed, and as a result course changes may be necessary for some students. In these cases, we will inform the student before the semester starts.

Workload and study pace
It is important that you consider at which pace the course is run. On the “Exchange courses” page you can find at which rate of study the course is. We advise you to not exceed a 100% workload during one period due to a high risk of schedule clashes. For example, either you pick 2 courses at a 50% pace that are given at the same time or you pick courses at a 100% study pace that are given after each other, and not at the same time.
