Study abroad events

INTERNATIONAL WEEKS

UEF International Mobility Services will arrange an International Week on 21-25 January 2019. Welcome to internationalise yourself!

The International Week includes info sessions on student exchange (in Finnish; see below), a student-exchange-related exhibition in the lobby space of Carelia and Canthia buildings. In addition to these, we will organise a panel discussion on student exchange (in Finnish) on both campuses. In the panel discussion, UEF students who have previously been on exchange will answer the questions of the panel host and the audience. Welcome!

The panel discussion will be held on Joensuu campus on Tuesday, 22 January from 1 to 3 pm (13-15) in room M100.

The panel discussion will be held on  Kuopio campus on Wednesday, 23 January from 12 to 2 pm (12-14) in room CA400.

PRE-DEPARTURE ORIENTATIONS

UEF International Mobility Services organises a pre-departure orientation in April (and a brief version in November) for all the UEF students who are going on a student exchange.
In the pre-departure orientation, we will discuss health, practical arrangements, and other relevant matters of outgoing exchange students.

NB! The pre-departure orientations will be held in Finnish. If you do not understand Finnish, no worries: all the necessary information will be sent to you via email in the form of an information package for the outgoing exchange students (in Finnish and in English). If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at international(a)uef.fi .
