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