Haaga-Helia Virtual Exchange


Lead paragraph

Do you wish to gain more international experience but cannot go abroad in the upcoming semester? At Haaga-Helia we are offering the possibility for a virtual exchange and studying online at Haaga-Helia for the spring semester of 2023.

Please note that we are also welcoming students on campus in spring 2023.

Virtual exchange in a nutshell

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

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 organised according to the students’ own schedules.

General eligibility criteria: CEFR B2 English, relevant study background, and the ability to participate in courses conducted in virtual platforms.


In the application, we ask for the basic information and a transcript of records, as well as a list of courses you want to join. Please find the course listing from our study guide: Virtual exchange course offer spring 2023

There is no limit to the number of courses you can choose to participate in during the virtual exchange. 

Please note that we cannot guarantee that you can join every course, as virtual exchange students are enrolled to courses in the second enrolment period in January.

Please ask your home university to nominate you by email to exch@haaga-helia.fi by 9 December 2022 and fill in the application form by 14 December June 2022.
