Kajaani University of Applied Sciences is a state-recognized university of applied sciences. The Finnish higher education system consists of two complementary sectors: universities of applied sciences (UAS) and universities. The universities of applied sciences focus on contacts with working life and train professional in response to labour market needs whereas traditional universities conduct scientific reasearch and provide instruction and postgraduate education based on it.

Combine Studying and Practising Sports

KAMK co-operates with Vuokatti-Ruka Sports Academy in order to enable competitive athletes to combine sports and studying. Professional coaches and the flexibility in studies guarantee that our student athletes have the possibility to focus on studying as well as sports at the same time.

The student athletes entering KAMK can participate in a training group together with athletes from Kainuu Brigade and vocational school. In Kajaani, there is a possibility to practice floorball, ice-hockey and soccer. If skiing, snowboarding, swimming or volleyball is your sport, the training groups take place in Vuokatti (a famous sports and leisure centre located 35 km from Kajaani).

An international eSports hub is currently being built in Kainuu. Taking into account the special needs of esports, the aim of the project is to design and implement a new esports athlete's path alongside traditional sports offered at Vuokatti-Ruka Sports Academy.

Participating the sports academy does not replace any courses.
