International opportunities for students

Stadin AO, Helsinki Vocational College and Adult Institute, has a long history of collaborating with other vocational institutes across Europe and elsewhere in the world.

As a student you have the opportunity to go abroad on an on-the-job training period with Erasmus+ funding. Usually the training periods last for a few months. In order to go abroad for a training period, you need to fulfill the following requirements:

  • You need to be 18 years old
  • Your studies have progressed well
  • You have completed at least one on-the-job training period in Finland.

In addition to on-the-job training periods abroad, you can also co-operate with students abroad in the current international Erasmus+ projects.

Internationalisation at home

Stadin AO offers also a lot of possibilities to acquire international competence at home. You can get to co-operate with international students in the following ways:

  • As an international tutor you can co-operate with international students at Stadin AO.
  • Many work places in which you can do an on-the-job learning period have an international working community. In such places, you can also complete a study unit that concentrates on working skills in an international environment.
  • We have virtual co-operation projects with teachers and students from various European partner colleges.

Please contact the International Affairs team specialist for your campus to find out more about the possibilities open to students in your field. You can find the contact information for our specialists here.
