Our objectives are to increase the number of international staff members and students, and to promote the internationalisation of the university community. We implement Russian-Finland student and teacher exchange under the FIRST mobility programme, administered by the Finnish National Agency of Education and funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture of Finland.
Student, teacher and staff exchanges with European universities are mainly realised within the Erasmus+, Nordplus, FIRST and Campus Europae programmes. With North American universities, student and research staff exchanges are mainly carried out within the framework of the ASLA-Fulbright programme and the International Student Exchange Programme, ISEP. Student exchanges with universities in the Arctic areas are realised within the UArctic’s mobility programme North2North. In addition, the university has several bilateral exchange programmes with other universities abroad. Furthermore, we also realise student, staff and teacher mobility with universities outside the EU/ETA region through the Erasmus + Global Mobility programme.
Every year, around 1,200 exchange students from abroad come to study at the university. We offer a wide range of Master’s and Bachelor’s degree programmes in English to our degree students arriving from other countries. Several study modules are available to exchange students in English.
