Course recommendations
Take Cisco networking as it is the best choice, a lot of ECTS points, free and recognised by the industry. Also, take courses with Harvey but NEVER take classes with Helja.

Finnish teachers are very subtle. If they suggest something, do it or they may get irritated - they will not show it but your grade will reflect it.
