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.
