Virtual Exchange autumn 2020

Haaga-Helia pilots virtual exchanges and thus, offers students the possibility to join us virtually and complete courses that award them with credits. Students can enjoy the multicultural learning environment without traveling.

The Virtual Exchange courses are free of charge and available only for the students in Haaga-Helia's partner schools.

General eligibility criteria: CEFR B2 English, relevant study background and the ability to participate in courses conducted in virtual platforms. As this is a virtual exchange pilot, we will accept a maximum of 30 students for virtual exchange in autumn semester 2020. 

The courses do not require participation in live lessons, which allows students from all time zones to complete courses similarly. Some courses involve group work/discussions that should be done during a certain time period, eg. a week’s time, but those meetings can be organized according to the students’ own schedules.

Students will receive more information about applying form their home institution's international coordinator by the end of July 2020. International coordinator, please contact if you have questions regarding the Virtual Exchange or want to receive the application instructions.

Course selection will be updated in early August. Enrolment for courses starts in the beginning of August.
