International Staff Training Week 2012


Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to inform you that Vaasa University of Applied Sciences VAMK is organizing an International Staff Training Week on April 24 – 27, 2012. The theme of the event is “Networking and Cooperation” and we hope that many staff members from our partner universities will join us.

The program will consist of an interesting mix with presentations about our institution, the Vaasa region in general including a sightseeing tour to our UNESCO world heritage site, the Kvarken archipelago. We hope to get your views and learn about your best practices on issues common for all higher education institutions:

  • Student Affairs Services including international student admissions
  • Marketing focusing on regional visibility
  • ICT solutions
  • Quality assurance within higher education systems and its evaluation
  • Student Guidance Services
  • Library Services
  • etc

We are confident that this wide-range program will interest your staff members for example student affairs secretaries, admissions coordinators, schedule planners, librarians, international coordinators and personnel from the ICT, marketing and quality assurance departments etc. All visitors will also be given the opportunity to present their own institution and their country.

During the event you will meet new people, create new networks and deepen already existing cooperation.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: international@puv.fi


Sincerely yours,


Tauno Kekäle
