Study at MTI / Cross-selectable studies
Cross-selectable studies

Choose tourism studies from the other institutions

The Multidimensional Tourism Institute offers you a unique opportunity to study the areas of tourism, catering, and the home economics across the borders of educational institutions and degree levels!


You may expand your special skills by taking any of the cross-selectable courses available at the University of Lapland, Lapland University of Applied Sciences, and the Lapland Tourism College. In particular, cross-selectable studies contain courses that complement the supply of each educational institution.

For example, university-level students can upgrade their practical skills by taking suitable courses at the Lapland Tourism College. Or, college students may deepen their knowledge through university-level courses. Lapland University of Applied Sciences offers studies that seamlessly combine practice and theory to all students.

Cross-selectable studies also enable one to continue studies at the next educational level: by taking the studies the student will already have completed parts of his/her next degree.


Students may complete studies in the other educational institutions according to a joint agreement.  Their schedules allow as many students as possible to participate in the courses. Note that not all of the cross-selectable studies are available in English.

The teaching of cross-selectable studies is always arranged according to the curriculum and teaching practices of each educational institution. You will get more detailed instructions and schedules at registering.

Having completed your studies you can include the cross-selected studies in your degree. Go to the subpage for further instructions on credit transfer.
