Exchange studies and traineeships
Karelia has more than 100 partner institutions in 30 different countries. Every year about 100 students from Karelia are either studying or doing practical training abroad and about 80 international students are studying or doing practical training at Karelia or in its partner organisations or companies in the region. Karelia offers three English-instructed Bachelor degree programs and a number of courses and modules for incoming exchange students and participates actively in developing blended intensive programs (BIP) with its partners.
Outgoing students get information and support on their possibilities for student and trainee exchanges and other ways to internationalize themselves from the international coordinator of their study field. Studies or practical training completed abroad are fully credited towards student’s degree at Karelia.
