Going abroad for a work placement
As a student at Centria, you have the possibilty of doing either part or the totality of their work placement / practical training abroad.
- In Europe, thanks to the Erasmus+ programme (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Francem Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Matla, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK)
- Anywhere in the world
Look for a work placement abroad in the same way you would look for one in Finland. Prepare your CV, reach out for companies in the fields that interest you. Similarly to a work placement in Finland, the work placement should be accepted by your degree programme and support your studies at Centria. Discuss your work training with your degree programme before accepting it!
- When and how long?
In general, you can undertake your work placement at any time, but discuss the best timing with your degree programme/tutor.
A work placement abroad would usually last around 3 - 5 months (minim. 3 months).
