Sina Khabbazi, Tourism student
Studying in SAMK UAS has been a really nice experience because of the university’s positive atmosphere as well as its international studying environment especially in my field of study which is International Tourism Management.
In addition, a well-designed curriculum, providing students with useful and interesting courses could be the other reason that makes studying in SAMK a really great experience.

Jichen Lu, Tourism student
I am Jichen Lu. I’m a student of SAMK, majoring in international tourism management. While I was finalizing my thesis, I was also working as an intern at an aviation IT company in Espoo. I would like to share my story with you.
How I came to Finland and studied at SAMK?
I came to study at SAMK through an international education cooperation program between China and Finland. As the Beijing government paid for my tuition fee and flights, I thought that studying in Finland would be a great opportunity for me, so I came to Finland in 2020.
My working experience in Finland
- My first internship was with SAMK EduTravel, and my role was Asian marketing specialist and coordinator of educational camps at that time.
- My second job was also in marketing. The company was Finland Holidays, which is in Rauma, Finland.
- Then followed my job at QOCO Systems Ltd, this job was also about marketing. QOCO has an international and flexible working environment, and as a beginner in the aviation industry, I felt really happy and lucky to work with my experienced colleagues.
As an international student, how to find a job in Finland?
I think it is important to have an active learning, motivated and optimistic mindset. You will learn and grow from the difficulties and eventually overcome them.
Be goal-oriented, never give up any hope even when being in an inferior position and use limited resources to maximize their use.
