Further support for the integration of international students

Welcome, international students!

We have compiled information from trusted partners to assist you in settling in and adapting to your new academic and living environment.

International Services helps international students settling in and adapting to their new living environment. We have been continuously developing various forms of cooperation with the municipality, certain authorities, third sector organisations and other partners to make the adaptation process for the international students smoother. Guidance with apartment search is a significant part of the support we provide. The aim is to help students feel at home in a new country and culture.

The semester starts with the Welcome Week, which is arranged for international students to get them familiarized with SAMK and local services. Welcome Week gives general orientation and assistance for dealing with non-study related administrative issues.

Overall, International Services aims to create a safe and supportive environment for international students, so that they can concentrate on their studies and get integrated into the local community as well as possible. In this endeavor, we cooperate extensively both locally and nationally.
