Exchange Possibilities and Exchange Programmes
Finnish institutions of higher education participate in different exchange programmes such as Erasmus+, FIRST+, Nordplus, north2north and usually student exchanges are based on these programmes. In addition, KAMK has several bilateral cooperation agreements with institutions around the world.
At the moment KAMK has partner universities and other partners in more than fifty countries. Each School has its own partners in co-operation. A cheap and easy way to spend time abroad is to go on international exchange at a partner university. Official agreements covering student and teacher exchanges between KAMK and our partners ensure that students do not have to deal with complicated red tape in order to obtain a study place abroad. The agreement also ensures that the receiving partner university does not charge tuition fees. Below you can find a list of international partners with whom we an agreement.
KAMK is a member of the Arctic University that has an exchange programme called north2north (n2n) and students from KAMK can go on exchange to n2n programme's partner universities. Exceptions are North American institutions, as each participating university is granted only a few exchange places per year with semester waivers for North American institutions. For a mobility to Denmark, students have to pay a tuition fee if KAMK does not have a bilateral agreement with the host institution. More information can be enquired from the International Services or from the International Coordinators.
In addition to KAMK’s partner universities, you can also apply for the so-called freemover student exchange. In this case, it is worth noting that the organizing party may charge a commission fee or administration fees for making the arrangements and even tuition fees.
Erasmus+ programme supports studies and practical training abroad.
KAMK is a member of the UArctic University. This membership strengthens KAMK’s operations and guarantees that KAMK is even more actively involved in developing far northern regions. More information on the network and its members is available on www.uarctic.org.
