Karelia UAS oppor­tu­ni­ties for students

Profes­sional devel­op­ment programmes

Hot Topic: Active ageing

A group of profes­sion­als includ­ing deci­sion and policy makers, prac­ti­tion­ers in the field, researchers and active citi­zens, who all in their turn promote active ageing in Chile, partic­i­pated in the online train­ing programme discussing differ­ent dimen­sions of ageing phenom­ena and prac­tices to foster better life for all. 

They learnt from the Finnish best prac­tices, devel­op­ment process, regional and national policy and care that promote holis­tic well-being. The course supports the national policy and action making in Chile and can be applied to any country consid­er­ing the chal­lenges of ageing population. 

Hot Topic: Joint inter­na­tional degree in Renew­able Energy

The inter­na­tional degree in renew­able energy has been a great success story in China for almost ten years already. The degree programme is created and imple­mented jointly by Karelia Univer­sity of Applied Sciences and its Chinese partner, and accred­ited by the Chinese Ministry of Educa­tion and Culture. 

The student enrol­ment is 100 students a year, and the first grad­u­ates have been very well received by the employ­ers. The grad­u­ates have key compe­tences and skills to promote more sustain­able and respon­si­ble energy solu­tions in China. Thus, it will have a signif­i­cant impact in a long-run. Just recently the programme passed success­fully the re-eval­u­a­tion process by the Chinese Ministry of Educa­tion and Culture and is to be contin­ued for many years more.
