An international degree student as a trainee?
In the global competition, all means are worth utilising. International students are specialists in the language and culture of their country. They also become familiar with the Finnish culture during their study years.
- Does your company intend to expand its business overseas?
- Are foreign contacts important to your company, but do you find it difficult to establish them because of language problems, for example?
- Do you carry out projects in Asia or Africa, for example, and need someone who knows the local culture?
- Would you like to improve the language skills of your company staff with language immersion?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, would you benefit from a foreign trainee?
Vaasa University of Applied Sciences has 200 international degree and exchange students from about 40 different countries in our English-language business, tourism and IT degree programmes. Among them, you may well find exactly what you need.
As a centre and exporter of high technologies, as well as a tourist town, Vaasa offers an excellent environment for practical training included in degrees. However, our international students are an under-utilised resource in the business life of the Vaasa region. In recent years, we have been working to improve the opportunities for foreign degree students to complete their traineeship specifically in the Vaasa region.
