FINNIPS network's annual Days of International Degree Programmes seminar will take place at JAMK University of Applied Sciences in October 2019. It is hoped that representatives of degree programmes, international services, student and admission services as well as marketing and communication participate widely in the event. Generally, all internationally oriented UAS staff members and those working with English-taught education are warmly welcome to attend.

International education will be approached from various different perspectives during the development days. The languages of the event are Finnish and English. The themes in the autumn 2019 will include HEIs’ international education marketing and student recruitment, digitalisation of education, education export, foreign degree students’ entry process to Finland as well as pedagogy and support services of diversifying student groups. The FINNIPS network was established at the end of 2009 and accordingly, the programme will also include 10-year anniversary celebrations!
