What has an exchange student to say to someone considering studying in HAMK? 🤔 #hamkstoriesinternational⠀ ...

“My name is Babar Lone and I am a 2nd year student of International Business at HAMK Häme University of Applied Sciences (Valkeakoski Campus).🖐 I started my studies after a long working experience in Sales & Marketing and logistics field. So I had an idea what are my missing skills and education are.🎓

I must say that with a well designed degree program and the best teachers I was able to learn new professional skills quickly which helped me to get a permanent and full-time job in Helsinki.🥳 At the start of my journey in HAMK, I could only imagine that after completing the degree programme I would be able to get a job. But my dream came true already during my studies.”🤩

"My name is Piia Gauriloff and I´m in my first year in HAMK in ICT Bioeconomy. As a mother of three I´d like to show my children an example how learning new things can be joyful and rewarding and bring positive experiences, even at as mature age as I´m in. I think the admission of membership of RUN-EU Student Board is a perfect example of such mind-refreshing activities. Besides, I never got the chance to do any international studies, so I treat this as my exchange year!

If I was to name one key element I´d like to promote in RUN Student Board, that would be the equality of opportunities of international studies for different student groups. For example, long exchange periods are not an option for all students for various reasons. I´m delighted to see that the RUN-crew has already started the work in the work packages for enabling versatile studies." #hamkstoriesinternational #RUNEU @run.eu_european.university

"My name is Mouhanad Mousalam, I am 29 years old, I am Syrian on papers and a global citizen by heart.🌍✈ I started work at the age of 18 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates as salesman, my main interest was psychology. I was not really interested in business, but after many years of working in sales and retail industry I came to understand that business and psychology are undeniably interconnected, thus my interest in business has grown.📈

I had many expectations going into HAMK, and it was all exceeded. I was surprised how diverse and vibrant the atmosphere was, lecturers and professors from around the globe are here to pass their knowledge and expertise, and students coming from all over the world to study and gain valuable experiences.💡💯 Working and studying in such environment is what I was looking for, I managed to build a broader more international network of friends and potential future business partners.🤩💎" #hamkstoriesinternational #studyinfinland

"Hello! My name is Nikolai, and I am a first year IB student. I am from Estonia, but I moved to Finland in the last year and now I am living in Valkeakoski. I joined RUN Student Advisory Board because I consider myself an active person. I have already joined HAVO, it is one university organization in Valkeakoski, and I work there as a social media manager. Also, I just would like to be closer to HAMK and University community. And for me it was very interesting how university organization looks inside. I am very happy that I was selected to be part of this new project in HAMK, and I will try to do my best.

RUN brings so many innovations for higher education. The mission is to promote and develop joint student-centred challenge and work-based flexible learning activities. I really want to take part in these activities to grow as a person and broaden my horizon in such an international project. So, as a member of RUN Student Board I am expecting to continue develop and get important and unforgettable experience. I am confident that my experience in RUN would be extremely exciting, interesting and valuable for both my studies and overall general development." @sokolov.kolja #hamkstoriesinternational #RUNEU @run.eu_european.university

"My name is Meryem Boudalal. I am 19 years old. I am a first-year bachelor student at ICT Boeconomy Engineering, in Forssa Campus. I am originally from Morocco and I came here to Finland mainly for my studies and to have a taste of the Finish education along with living an experience that I think would be exceptionally new and interesting for me.

I have always been a person who loves to be in an international context, meet with new people, learn new things and grow my culture along with exchanging mine with others. However, and because of Corona circumstances, it is now hard to travel and discover the world just the way I have always dreamed of, so I thought that joining RUN, would be a great opportunity for me to travel the world virtually along with learning new skills and grow as a person.

It is a pleasure to be part of the RUN board. My expectations as a member of RUN Student Advisory Board is to connect with new people all over the world, develop my network and learn new skills. I want to live this experience and learn the most I can from it. 🤩" #hamkstoriesinternational #RUNEU @run.eu_european.university
