Study methods and environments

Studies at Laurea include study units and working life projects which are executed according to Laurea’s learning model, Learning by Developing (LbD). In broad strokes this unique learning model means focusing on practical projects with real-life companies and organizations. Laurea´s LbD model emphasizes individual freedom and responsibility, equality, co-operation with organizations and teamwork. Study methods also include a variety of lectures, e-learning methods, group and individual assignments, presentations and exams.

Please see also a video about Lbd:


Laurea's grading system

​Laurea UAS grade​ECTS Grade
​5 Excellent​A
​4 Good​B
​3 Good​C
​2 Satisfactory​D
​1 Satisfactory​E
​0 Fail​F or FX

Certain examinations are given the grade H = Pass, S = Completed or 0 = Fail.

Please note that while the ECTS system is based on an expectancy of the distribution of different grades, the Finnish system is not. That means that in the Finnish system there is no rule or expectation as to how big a proportion of the participants in any given study unit can be given what grade; each student is graded on one´s individual performance, not in relation to the performance of others as such.
