How to interpret course codes

e.g. XENT005 or XRU0102:

X = Language and communication studies, followed by
language-specific codes:

  • XKV = FINNISH (AS MOTHER TONGUE) SCIENTIFIC WRITING (kirjoitusviestintä)
  • XPV = FINNISH (AS MOTHER TONGUE) SPEECH COMMUNICATION (puheviestintä)
  • XSU = FINNISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE
  • XVK = SIGN LANGUAGE
  • XEN = ENGLISH
  • XRU = SWEDISH (ruotsi)
  • XSA = GERMAN (saksa)
  • XRA = FRENCH (ranska)
  • XES = SPANISH (espanja)
  • XVE = RUSSIAN (venäjä)
  • XSL = SLOVAK (slovakki)
  • XJA = JAPANESE (japani)
  • XKI = CHINESE (kiina)


When the 4th item is a letter, it refers to the faculty.
When the 4th item is 0, the 5th number refers to the faculty.
These are followed by the actual course codes.
