Gaining a lot of new experience

Chi Do, Vietnam
Degree Programme in Inter­na­tional Business

At Karelia UAS I have had chances to gain a lot of new experience. In addition to group work, I also practiced in real projects in cooper­ation with local companies. The teachers and staff are helpful whenever I need advice.

I am in my third year of studies towards a bachelor’s in Inter­na­tional Business at Karelia University of Applied Sciences. I can’t tell any particular reason why I chose Finland and Karelia UAS as my desti­nation. However, after 2 years of studying here, I think it was my best choice!

At Karelia UAS I have had chances to gain a lot of new experience. I also can express my thoughts and ideas without rejection of any kind. Due to the pandemic, I spent 1,5 years studying online which I thought would cause many challenges for me. Anyways, every­thing went smoothly even though I could not go to the campus. The curriculum was flexible enough to suit the situation. 

In addition to group work, I have also practiced in real projects in cooper­ation with local companies. The teachers and staff are helpful whenever I need advice. Also, I was surprised by the friend­liness and kindness of the people in Joensuu. I have never been turned down when asking for help in times of trouble on the road, at school, on the bus, where-ever.

I am grateful for the wonderful experi­ences I have gained during my studies at Karelia UAS. Ihave been able to develop my profes­sional skills and step out of my comfort zone. I highly recommend Karelia UAS to all students who wish to experience a high-quality inter­na­tional education.
