Internalisation at Home

Internationalisation at home literally means acquiring international experience and getting to know different cultures in one’s home country. Internationalization at home aims to ensure that also non-mobile students will benefit from international education.

SAMK has 9 bachelor degrees and 4 master degrees that are fully taught in English. SAMK also offers many selective courses in English, both online and face-to-face. 

International Café, International Corner and other similar events also make sure that different cultures, languages and international atmosphere are visible on campuses.

In addition, the students can improve the language skills needed in their field of expertise by studying elective languages such as Chinese, French, German and Spanish.
