Successful launch of multimodal education in sports
Haaga-Helia’s Open University of Applied Sciences started providing multimodal education in sports at the Varala Sports Institute in Tampere. The education is primarily intended for sports professionals working in Tampere or its vicinity, who already have a Bachelor of Sports Studies degree or a further vocational qualification in sports. Our goal is for each student to accumulate a minimum of 60 credits during the academic year, which will qualify them to apply for degree studies in the 2020–2021 academic year. Approximately 30 students were included in the first implementation.
