Student Exchange

Come and make the most of your exchange period at Savonia University of Applied Sciences! If you are interested in coming to Savonia, first contact the International Office at your own university. The process will continue from there. The studies you complete during your exchange period will be compensated according to the home university’s curriculum and the learning agreement.

Each school of Savonia UAS has appointed an International Coordinator who guides and helps the students in questions concerning going abroad and coming to Savonia UAS.
