Due to globalisation, competition on the international education and labour market and the changing needs of working life, today’s graduating students are expected to possess a yet wider professional know-how as well as personal knowledge and skills in operating in the globalising working life. Internationality is reality regardless of the future profession or job description. That is why JAMK offers students many different possibilities to develop their international competence during studies!

Every JAMK student has the opportunity to apply e.g. for studies or practical training abroad as part of the degree at JAMK as well as to apply for a grant from the JAMK International Services for the mobility period. Some degree programmes also provide the opportunity to complete an international double degree.

In addition, students can acquire international experience right here in Finland through internationalisation at home; it is possible to complete a degree completely in English, most degree programmes have the possibility of completing courses taught in a foreign language and the language centre provides a wide selection of language and culture studies. Internationality is further promoted through studies by using foreign literature and by familiarising students with international cases in their own field (e.g. international projects). Foreign degree students and hundreds of exchange students, foreign visitors and lecturers coming to JAMK annually also serve to enrich JAMK’s international operational environment.
