Exchange Studies

Instructions for exchange applicants

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 study modules and read the “Welcome to HAMK” guide for new exchange students.

Once you have found suitable modules and discussed with your own university’s staff about exchange studies at HAMK, please read carefully the instructions about nomination and online application.


Exchange studies in 2019-2020

You can find study modules available for exchange students in HAMK’s module selection .

In order to find the modules available in the degree programme / campus of your exchange, set the filters as follows:
TAGS: choose “Exchange”
DEGREE PROGRAMME: choose the degree programme you are applying to.

Please note: choose modules from one campus only – the location of the degree programme of your exchange studies. The distances between our campuses are quite long, so it is not possible to attend modules at more than one campus.
