Student Exchange for International Degree Students


One third of our students complete a part of their studies abroad by studying at one of our partner universites around the world. Participating in a student exchange increases your international competence. You may learn a new language or strengthen existing language skills, study new subjects or acquire new perspectives. Studying abroad also provides you with personal characteristics needed in today's international and multicultural environments, not to mention the exciting experiences and new friends you will get during the exchange.

For many of our students the time spent abroad during a student exchange has been the best time of their life. Take advantage of the world provided to you by the University of Vaasa.

International degree students of the University of Vaasa can also participate in a student exchange (some regulations apply) either by completing courses at one of our partner universities during a semester or by completing an international double degree. Students can also acquire a study place at a foreign university on their own, so called freemover exchange.

You can read more about the student exchange from the subfolders. You can also contact Amanuensis Ella Lankinen at or in Luotsi-building, room 106.
