Posted on 2016-04-06 14:12:46 EEST.

VAMK and University of Vaasa excelled in the evaluation of the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme where students and staff gave feedback on their exchange experiences. The two Vaasa higher education institutions received top marks on course content from the incoming exchange students. Visiting staff gave praise to the overall experience of the exchange from practical issues to hospitality.  

In a European wide evaluation Finland was recognised as the country where HEIs (The Higher Education Institutions) excel in academic mentoring and best answer the queries of incoming students. Outgoing students appreciate the fact that Finnish HEIs are the most punctual in paying the grants for the outgoing students on time.

Feedback was asked from incoming students and staff, who did their exchange in Finland during academic year 2014/15. Feedback was received from all HEIs as well as outgoing students and staff. The results were presented by the national agency CIMO, Centre for International Mobility.


In 2015 VAMK welcomed 81 incoming exchange students and 99 students left for an exchange.
