Information about the learning environment
The operations of the Porvoo campus are characterised by co-learning and involvement in projects with a focus on working life. The campus is also open to the public daily, giving people access to a nice restaurant, an extensive professional library and a number of comfortable meeting places.
Studies are completed in large modules, and learning is promoted in many different ways: reading literature, participating in lectures, seminars and various workshops, and finding solution models independently and in groups.
