Student Exchange Information

This information is meant for VAMK degree students who want to complete an exchange or practical training abroad.

International Office

The International Office is responsible for the International Affairs of Vaasan ammattikorkeakoulu (VAMK), University of Applied Sciences. We take care of the vast partner network which extends to all parts of the world and we always keep maintaining the network suitable for our students and staff to be able to go abroad easily and to get as much as possible from their exchanges out in the world.

We also work as a safety net for our incoming exchange students. We help our international students to adapt to the Finnish education system and to the society. We arrange orientations, trips, events, and all kinds of possible ways to make the stay for the students as fruitful and comfortable as possible. We also help departments to arrange the practical issues of incoming teachers and other staff exchanges if needed.

And so much more...  No day is like the previous one at the International Office!

If you have any questions about the international affairs of VAMK, please do not hesitate to contact us!
