At JAMK, international cooperation is highly valued and internationalisation is actively supported in all of our operations.

What International JAMK stands for

Our international cooperation includes cross-border education and RDI-work between higher education institutions and business life, several bachelor and master level degree programmes conduted in English, a wide range of joint research projects, networks, joint degree programmes, foreign students and staff, active student and staff mobility and an operational environment that enables internationalisation. In addition to education we offer research and development services for business life and industry helping to create an international Central Finland.

Our extensive international partnership network enables the internationalization of our students, staff and interest groups. A great deal of the partners, as well as JAMK, are participating in the European Union’s Erasmus+ for higher education programme promoting the internationalization and quality of higher education through international cooperation projects and exchange programmes.

The European Commission has awarded JAMK e.g. the following quality recognitions: Diploma Supplement Label 2013–2016, Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014–2020 and Erasmus Golden Award for Excellence 2013 (excellent quality in implementing Erasmus staff mobility). Furthermore, many of our Degree Programmes have passed eminent international accreditations.
