Students at Arcada have different options when it comes to going abroad and conducting part of their studies overseas.

  • To study abroad is enriching for you as a student on both a professional and personal level. The experiences gained opens new doors and opportunities.
  • Exchange studies are integrated in your degree and should not delay your graduation.
  • The minimum time for exchange studies is 3 months (90 days) but we recommend that you go on exchange for one semester or for the whole academic year.

Application Period

For exchange in spring 2021:
3rd September 2020 - 1st October 2020

Study Abroad Info Sessions

We organize information sessions about the Study Abroad process for everyone who wishes to apply for student exchange. The info sessions are held in September and in January before the application deadline. However, we advice you to have a look at the information on these pages in advance, as you need time to prepare your application. Start by reading the page How do I apply.

Information sessions in September 2020 N.B. new times!:

  • 3.9.2020 at 10:00-11.30
  • 8.9.2020 at 15:00-16:30

Both sessions are held online through Zoom. Sign up through international@arcada.fi no later that 2 hours before the sessions begins. You will then get a link to the session through an e-mail. 

So all in all it was a great trip with many new experiences, new friends and sometimes an emotional rollercoaster between wanting to go home, wanting to stay and just not knowing what you want to do. To be honest if I had the chance I would have stayed another year but I am sure I will be back soon.
