Internationality is central to all education provided at KAMK. As our student you will be able to complete part of your studies and practical training abroad. The main principle is that you can study abroad after your first year and complete your practical training period after two years of study. All students can apply for a grant from KAMK to cover extra costs of going abroad. The easiest and cheapest way to go on exchange is to go to KAMK partner universities.
The opportunities for studying and training abroad are presented in more detail during meetings held every year.
In addition to regular student exchanges students studying Business and International Business and Tourism have the opportunity of completing a double degree. In this case you will complete a part of your studies at a KAMK's partner university and when you graduate, you will also be awarded a degree from the partner university.
It is not necessary to go so far a field to gain international experiences at KAMK. The foreign degree and exchange students as well as visiting lecturers from our partner universities abroad are an important part of our internationalisation. Besides completing the whole degree in English, most of our Finnish-taught degrees offer some English-taught courses as well as language and culture studies. You can also take part in the Student Union KAMO's activities.
For our current students, the detailed instructions related to student exchanges, double degree and practical training abroad can be found on our intranet pages (requires a user name and password).
All our Schools have an International Coordinator who deals with international affairs as well as teaching. In all matters concerning international affairs please contact the International Coordinators or the staff of the International Office/International Services.
Internationalisation is for Everybody
In Finland everybody is encouraged to go on exchange. Each year the Finnish National Agency for Education reserves a budget for special needs grant which is intended to enable international mobility in circumstances when an injury, impairment, illness, learning difficulty or other special need causes additional costs that are not covered by other sources. The grant is paid on top of the normal exchange grant.
