Internationalisation at Home

The international office wants to deepen internationalisation of Centria, as well as work with different aspects of student mobility. Only a small percentage of students study abroad, therefore, internationalisation at home is essential. The intention with Internationalisation at home is to increase the interaction between local and international students, as well as increasing the international content in all study programs. Internationalisation at home aims to ensure that also non-mobile students will benefit from international education.

Centria has 5 study programs that are fully taught in English. Students from the Finnish taught study programs can take obligatory and selective courses from the English taught programs and this is the formal and Academic way to make the study path international.

Centria offers many selective courses in English, both online and face-to-face. These are also an excellent option to make your study parh international; e.g. Working in a Multicultural world and Getting Local and Global.

International students are encouraged to focus on studying Finnish and Swedish. Language skills will make it easier to communicate with the surrounding society and increase the possibility to find an internship in the area. There are also courses that will open the Finnish Society for an international student, e.g. Finnish Society and Culture.

You may also increase your global perspective by studying a foreign language. Centria offers beginners courses in Spanish, German, French and Italian. 

The Campus at Centria is international, with students from around 40 different countries, Centria arranges different activities for students with the focus to mix local and international students.
