International activities

International activities

International operations and co-operation are a natural part of everyday life at the Vocational College Lappia. An important form of cooperation is student and training exchange. Students are able to complete their on-the-job learning placement periods abroad, mostly in Europe. The aim is to provide students’ opportunities for acquiring the skills they need to meet the requirements of an international work environment both in Finland and abroad.

Students from abroad are also welcome to have their on-the-job learning period at the Vocational College Lappia.
There are also good possibilities for teachers and staff to participate in international exchange programmes.

You can get information on the international activities from the contact persons.
