Modern learning environment
Our well-equipped learning environment consists of two campuses located within walking distance from each other. The historically important and newly renovated buildings of the City Campus provide an inspiring atmosphere for learning, whereas the Palosaari Campus is nestled in an attractive setting by the sea.
VAMK prides itself on modern and well-equipped facilities. Technobothnia, the technology research and teaching laboratory, provides our engineering students with an excellent platform to participate in projects introducing the latest technology. Numerous local and international companies and organisations offer the Business Economics and Tourism students an authentic training environment. Practical training in the region's bilingual organisations within Health Care and Social Services as well as in the school's modern premises prepare the students for working life.
All students have free access to computers linked to the Internet and a wireless campus network. The auditoriums and classrooms are fitted out with the latest audiovisual equipment to enhance studies, and the library collections and information services are available to all students. There are also student restaurants on both campuses.
Vaasa as a city providing higher education, as a locomotive of the high technology export industry and as a centre of tourism offers an active and international environment for the staff and students of VAMK. It has been calculated that the total amount of students in higher education in Vaasa is approximately 12 000. It can be said that every fifth person you meet in the city area is a degree student, which also shows in the broad selection of services and hobbies provided by Vaasa. Vaasa is indeed a reputable academic city and students are an integral part of it!
