Practical Training

Oulu University of Applied Sciences is an active matchmaker between students and employers: practical training is included in all our degree programmes and most students write their Thesis in conjunction with a company. Our international exchange students also receive assistance in finding placements in the Oulu region.

Creative teamwork

Practical training in the framework of Erasmus+ programme in Oulu

Under the Erasmus+ programme students from participating countries are entitled to an Erasmus+ grant for student and trainee exchange. Incoming students apply for Erasmus+ grants from their own home institutions.

Ask about the possibilities for an Erasmus+ placement grant from your own higher education institution. Incoming students find their placements independently; some support is given by the international co-ordinators of the campuses or other staff members of Oulu UAS.

Incoming Erasmus+ exchange students can seek for a placement during their study period and extend their stay for the duration of the practical training. Students can continue in practical training directly after the study period has ended.

For more information on how to arrange your practical training through Oulu University of Applied Sciences, please contact the international co-ordinator of the campus in question.

You can find general information on trainee exchange programmes and practical training in Finland on the Study in Finland website.
