Go global during your studies


Lead paragraph

Haaga-Helia students have excellent opportunities to acquire the skills and experience needed in the global environment and in today’s working life.

Student exchange

The students of Haaga-Helia have a possibility to complete one semester of their studies abroad in one of the 200 partner universities. Student exchange is organised through Erasmus+ (European), Nordplus (Nordic), FIRST+ (Finland-Russia) or bilateral mobility programmes.

Double degree

Some of our partner universities also offer a possibility to acquire a Double Degree. Double Degree students complete two semesters abroad and receive two diplomas: one from Haaga-Helia and one from the partner university.

Work placement abroad

Completing work placement abroad gives an excellent opportunity for students to increase their professional expertise, language skills, and cultural awareness.
Haaga-Helia gives information, support, and guidance on how to arrange your work placement abroad.

Short term studies in an international environment

In case a long student exchange period does not suit your schedule, attending a summer school or a short international intensive course abroad or in Haaga-Helia (one to eight weeks) could be an option. The courses are accepted as part of your degree at Haaga-Helia.
