Bachelor’s degrees completed at a university of applied sciences include practical studies that increase professional competence. At HAMK’s English degree programmes, work placements account for 30 credits.
Work placement related to your studies
The purpose of the work placements is to familiarise students with the most important practical work tasks, especially in their own field, and to teach them to apply their knowledge and skills to the work environment. The aim is to promote the students’ career development, familiarise them with the status of employees and with the work environment, and to improve their job prospects.
Students complete the practical studies included in the their degrees during the course of their studies, as supervised work placement in Finland, abroad or in their own companies. Students who have acquired competence in line with the aims of the work placements elsewhere, may apply to have their prior competence and learning recognised and accredited through the RPL procedure.
