Finnips - Joint Efforts for Internationalisation

This publication illuminates the reasons for arranging entrance examinations abroad in pursuance of describing the development and activities of the FINNIPS network...

In northern Finland the nature is always present and you see the beauty and difference between the seasons. This year we have been extremely lucky in Oulu to witness the most beautiful autumn colours or 'ruska' as we call it in Finnish.
"Living in Oulu has been the treasure of my youth journey. The nature here is unbelievably charming and I have been impressed by many kindhearted people. Especially, to me, studying at Oamk has made the city of Oulu even more special. As a student of Degree Programme in International Business, I have a chance to acquaint myself with multinational study environment, grow more skills as well as broaden my network to be ready for the future career path. So if you are thinking about applying to my degree programme in IB, I would love to fully welcome you. Just keep your unflinching determination and move forward, you’re so close to this delightful destination. This picture was taken in one of my favourite places in Oulu, Tuira, which is the city district close to city center." - Hailey, IB student #Oamk #Finnips #Finnipsfeaturing
" In my degree programme in IT there is a wide variety of courses available. The subjects are incredibly useful and the classes are enjoyable. The teachers are phenomenal and are some of the friendliest people you'll meet. Furthermore, with my class been so international, it's easy to make friends from all over the world. It's a truly unique school. Oulu is a relatively cheap in Finland's scale, safe, and small city full of quiet, yet kind people. Despite the cold weather, the people here are warm-hearted and always willing to help. OAMK is a great option as the teachers are flexible, work-study projects are plentiful, and there is lots of work options following and even during the process of your degree. This picture was taken at my favourite place in Oulu, Sauna boat at Tuira beach" -PRIYA, IT student #Oamk #Finnips
