Where to go, what to do in Oulu?
Text: Anni Jyrinki Picture: Study in Oulu
When a foreign student comes to Oulu a lot of useful and important information can be found on the Internet.
Study in Oulu is an Internet page that all the incoming international students should visit. Firstly, it is a wide information package about the international degree study possibilities at the Oulu University of Applied Sciences as well as at the University of Oulu. Secondly, the pages provide you with a lot of important information about Oulu as well as about Raahe. All information is in English.
At this same page you can find useful information for international degree students living in Oulu. Latest news and information is easily found.
Very important parts of this webpage are stories that other international students tell. Those stories are entertaining and tell foreigners about how others have experienced Oulu, Raahe and the Finnish culture. For example a girl from China tells her views about Finnish people and a girl from Slovenia writes how cosy Oulu feels.
But as we all know, studying is not everything. Through the link "Oulu Bits & Pieces" you find information about leisure time activities, student life, culture and much more.
Go, Oulu, go!
Another useful web page is International Trainees in Oulu. It is targeted especially for students who want to do their practical training abroad while studying their degree here in Oulu.
The Students section there has information about practical training possibilities abroad and also in Oulu. This web page introduces, among other things, how to find a placement from all around the world including the vivid city of Oulu. The page is created by the Erasmus Placement Consortium of the Oulu University of Applied Sciences, University of Oulu, and City of Oulu.
It is highly recommended to visit these web pages. They certainly give you a good idea how to do your practical training abroad and perhaps help you to enjoy Oulu even more.
