Studies in game development

Kajaani University offers the possibility to start studies in the Informations Technology field through carefully designed courses, allowing those with no previous knowledge to apply and study.


The courses are online based (apart from project studies) and students do not need to attend lectures in the first part of the program. The graph below shows how the studies are structured.

Students who already study can join the program and study on their own independently.

Each of the courses and programs has its own exams and tasks. Program participants are graded based on the completed tasks and exams within each of the courses. The students with the highest total scores will be given the KAMK study right towards a Bachelors degree.
