      What I would highlight: First system was real hard for me, but gradually I figured out things and it was in sync. The study group was good while I had my day job, juggling between the two was fun actually. I enjoyed that part of the journey.

      Course programme

      Nursing studiesThe studies consist of basic studies, professional studies, elective studies, a Bachelor`s thesis and supervised clinical practises. Our focus is on evidence-based clinical nursing where you strengthen your clinical skills required in your future profession. Before clinical practices you will practice your practical skills in clinical laboratories, simulated learning environments with diverse methods and modern equipment.
      When starting studies, you will prepare an individual study plan (ISP) based on your curriculum, the recognition of your prior learning (RPL) and your personal development needs, which may shorten the length of your studies.
      Your will  study full-time and usually on weekdays, possible also on the evenings. Your studies will include theoretical teaching, various practical assignments, web-based studies, independent and group studies and various workshops. You will also carry out written assignments in each course. In addition, every Metropolia student will complete multidisciplinary innovation project studies (10 credits) with other students from various degree programmes.
      Clinical practise and Bachelor´s thesisAbout one third of the nursing studies consists of clinical practise, which mostly takes place in various care and operating environments in the health care and social services sector. There are clinical practise periods in every term. Please take into consideration that you may have to work in three shifts in many places where you will be carrying out your clinical training.
      The clinical practices take place in Finnish language environments. Therefore fluency in Finnish language is required at least in level B1 in the entrance examination. Also the curriculum includes Finnish language studies for international students.
      Your degree will include a Bachelor´s thesis  (15 credits), which is usually carried out in pairs in one of Metropolia's workplace-oriented projects.
      International aspects in the studiesMetropolia offers extensive opportunities for international student exchange. You can complete a part of your clinical practices and theoretical studies abroad in Europe, Africa and Asia, and also in Canada. You can also take part in Metropolia's international activities in various ways, for example by attending international intensive courses or participating in different international projects.
