Natural Resources


The department of natural resources offers an exchange programme in English in the field of agriculture and rural industries during 2018-2019. In OUAS you will meet a modern learning environment, not only on the campus but also hands-on learning experience in Oulu Region. It means group work and individual tasks, which are closely connected to real life and local people. The tasks offer you an opportunity to get a view of farming and other rural livelihoods as well as environmental issues in Finland. You will do cooperation with local stakeholders: entrepreneurs, companies, private and public organizations, villages etc. Download a leaflet.
