Long experience in international cooperation

Xamk has a large partner network in tens of different countries. The network consists of Erasmus+ -partners and partners based on bilateral agreements,

Xamk offers several ways of incorporating international elements to the studies. A degree or its part can be completed in English, and there are foreign students attending Xamk’s summer term and the studies of degree programmes with instruction in English. Exchange periods or practical training can be carried out in foreign partner schools or organisations either through the Erasmus and Nordplus programmes or bilateral student exchange agreements. In addition to interesting courses, studies abroad also offer new experiences, friends and promote language skills and self-confidence.

An exchange period typically lasts from 3 to 12 months. It usually takes place during the second or third year of studies. The aim is that the studies completed during this period are recognised as a part of the degree. Therefore, an exchange period doesn’t usually postpone graduation. Students going for exchange can apply for a study grant.

Xamk’s international services help both out-going and in-coming exchange students and support Xamk’s departments and units in their international activities. The aim is to improve students’ skills in working in international and multicultural working environments. Student exchange is a part of high quality higher education and promotes students’ professional growth and competence.
