Learning Agreement is a preliminary study plan and an agreement between the student, JAMK and the student's home institution of the studies to be completed during the exchange period. Afterwards students can transfer the credits obtained at JAMK to their home institution according to the home institution's credit transfer regulations. After the exchange period the International Services of JAMK provides a Transcript of Records for all exchange students. The Transcript of Records shows all the courses chosen in the Learning Agreement and possible Changes to the original Learning Agreement, with the credits and grades earned.
The preliminary Learning Agreement is drawn up well before the beginning of the exchange period. However, as the study plan often undergoes some changes, it is revised after the start of the exchange and the Learning Agreement is updated by filling in the Changes to the original Learning Agreement.
As you choose the courses notice that 65 – 75 % of them have to be chosen from the School and study programme you are applying to! This means that you have to choose at least 20 credits (assuming that you are going to do 30 credits per semester) in your Learning Agreement from the courses offered by the School you are applying to. After that it is also possible to choose a couple of additional courses from the other study programmes and Schools of JAMK.
After your exchange period at JAMK you will be provided a Transcript of Records based on your Learning Agreement, and a Letter of Confirmation based on the completed exchange period.
