Practical Training Abroad
Make the most of the opportunity to complete your practical training period abroad, during your studies at KAMK. In view of your future career the experience gained by working abroad provides you with a significant advantage in the job market and it clearly demonstrates your willingness to take risks and to survive in a variety of environments to potential employers.
The same rules apply to international traineeships as to practical training completed in Finland. Before starting your training period you must check your school's recommendation concerning the timing of the practical training. Please consult your International Coordinator or your Practical Training Coordinator.
The application period is always open. However, it is a good idea to start planning your practical training abroad in good time – at least six months before your desired training period. Consider what you would like to do and learn while working as a trainee, where you would like to complete your training period and why. Please write an application and CV in English or the target country's language. Take these with you and visit your practical training co-ordinator to discuss possible placements and further actions. Please also remember the social media channels.
You should apply for a placement yourself, both in Finland and abroad. Please remember that finding a job abroad demands patience, flexibility and activeness. You can find information about available practical training places for example from this webpage.
