The student exchange and work placement activities continued to be active in 2018. A total of 976 students used exchange or placement opportunities through our programmes. The most popular destinations were Germany, Spain and the Netherlands. A total of 419 exchange students came to our campuses from 34 countries, with the majority originating from France, the Netherlands and Germany. We signed agreements on new student exchange programmes with Chile, Taiwan, Estonia and the UK.
We supported our students going abroad as exchange students by organising Intercultural Training courses. We also received grants in the amount of EUR 550,000 for the promotion of international mobility. Haaga-Helia’s visibility
and partnership network was strengthened in the EAIE, NAFSA and APAIE conferences in Geneva, Switzerland; Philadelphia, PA, in the USA; and in Singapore, respectively. We also renewed the student exchange application
procedure by transforming it into a fully digital system.
