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.
