Experiencing an Exchange at HAMK

Finland has become the premier country internationally in the field of education.

We here at Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK) warmly welcome exchange students from our partner institutions abroad. We have bilateral agreements with about 100 educational institutions abroad and our whole exchange programme system is based on these agreements. In special cases, students can be accepted from outside the above schemes.

To take the first step towards exchange studies at HAMK, we recommend that you take a look at the suitable courses and read the “Welcome to HAMK” guide for new exchange students. In addition to courses, you can also find the application deadlines in “suitable courses for exchange students”. Before applying, you need to be officially nominated by your home university. Please read more from “instructions for exchange applicants”.

If you have any questions about exchange studies with us, please feel free to contact the international contact person of the degree programme you would like to study at. You can find the contact information here.
