Exchange Studies at HAMK

Welcome to start your Exchange Studies with us! Our Exchange Programme is meant for you, if you study in one of our 120 partner institutions around the world.

How to start your exchange studies at HAMK?

To take the first step towards exchange studies at HAMK, start from here:

  1. Check if your current institution and HAMK are partners.
  2. Choose the Programme and studies that fits best for your desired study and career path.
  3. Discuss and agree with your own university’s staff about exchange studies at HAMK.
  4. Check the dates and deadlines for application and starting of the studies
  5. Fill your online application, add the needed attachements and fill the online learning agreement.
  6. When we accept your exchange studies, you will receive more information about the start of your studies to your email. Before that you can find information from our Student Page

1. Check if your university and HAMK are partners:

We welcome firstly students from our partner network and the exchange programme is ment for them.

In special cases, students can be accepted from other instutions. They are called “Freemovers” and you can find more information about this from belowe.

Go to SoleMove system, and click Search-button to see all our partner institutions around the world.

2. Choose the Programme and Studies

The complete module selection for each degree programme will be found here after it has been published for the next academic year. In addition to the studies offered by the degree programme, there are also some virtual courses available.

A summary of modules offered is given under each degree programme. Students often complete two consecutive modules (2 x 15 ECTS) during one semester. Normally, it is not possible to select single courses from the module, i.e. the whole module has to be completed. Please contact the guidance counsellor of the degree programme for further information.

Please note that the distances between the HAMK campuses range from 10 to 100 kilometre​s. We advise that you select studies only from the campus where your degree programme is situated!

FAQ – exchange studies

Contact your home institution and your guidance counsellor at HAMK.

Remember to ask for the official Transcript of Records at this address [email protected].  If any courses are missing, contact your guidance counsellor.

Information for official:

To be able to nominate your students to HAMK, you will need a user account to our SoleMove system. Please contact [email protected].

Please notice, that we don’t accept late nominations or applications.

We have bilateral agreements with around 120 educational institutions abroad and our whole exchange programme system is based on these agreements. In special cases, students can be accepted as a freemover from outside the above schemes. Due to the limited number of available spots, we prioritise students from our partner institutions. Applications from freemovers will be reviewed only after the available spots have been allocated to students from our partner universities.

The freemover applicant must be a degree student of a higher education institution in the same field of study that the student wishes to study at Häme University of Applied Sciences. The acceptance of a freemover student is done on a case-by-case basis. The freemover student must be nominated by their home institution according to the instructions given on this website.

Tuition fee

HAMK’s tuition fee is applicable to freemover students who are non-EU/EEA citizens and whose home university does not have a student exchange agreement (e.g. Erasmus+, Erasmus+ Global, bilateral) with HAMK.

The tuition fee for bachelor’s studies for one semester is €4850 and for the whole academic year €9700. HAMK does not provide any scholarships for freemover exchange students.
