Educated at VAMK
The word alumni comes from the Latin word for ” foster child “. Vaasa University of Applied Sciences is proud of its alumni, which is why we encourage those who have studied and worked with us to participate in our alumni activities. It is good for a VAMK alumni to go out into the world with a feeling of pride. Growth continues throughout life, and we want to be with you on that path!
Welcome to join the VAMK alumni network!
Anyone who has studied or worked at VAMK or former institutions can become an alumni.
We at VAMK think that alumni activities should not only be fun, but also useful for both graduates and students. By joining, you can find out about our further and continuing education and participate in alumni meetings. The meetings are also a great networking opportunity, so you might just meet someone relevant to your career through alumni activities.
As an alumni, you will have the opportunity to act as a visiting lecturer and as a commissioner of student projects. You can also offer internships and projects to VAMK students, so you can really help others to get ahead.
The Career Tracking Survey is a unique opportunity for us to hear from you how our training has served you in the working life and what you think about it. The survey collects up-to-date information on the post-graduation careers of graduates and the match between their skills and the needs of working life.
The survey is carried out annually and always targets graduates who have completed their studies five years earlier. The survey is carried out at the same time in all Finnish universities of applied sciences.
In 2020, 41.7% of 2015 graduates responded to the survey, compared to a national response rate of 34%.
This year, the career tracking survey will be sent on 13 October to all graduates of Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in 2016 by email and SMS.
The results of the study will be used for the development of universities of applied sciences, career guidance and alumni activities. The results of the career monitoring survey can be viewed at the Ministry of Education and Culture’s website Vipunen.
