All About VAMK

Modern learning environment

The operations of VAMK were completely centred on the Palosaari campus at the beginning of the year 2017 when teaching of social and health care moved to the new, modern premises when the learning environment Alere was finished.

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  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 several student restaurants on the Palosaari campus.

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 13 000. 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!
