All the international students are warmly welcomed to KAMK. New students can soon notice that we care all of our students. We arrange reception for our new international students on their arrival to Kajaani. The tutoring students will meet you on arrival and make sure that you will find your way to the accommodation safely. The studies begin with 4-day orientation program and team-building activities to make the beginning of studies as smooth as possible.
Friend Family Programme
KAMK runs a Friend Family Programme, which offers our international students the chance to get to know Finnish culture and language better by pairing participating students with families from the Kainuu area. The Friend Family Programme not only allows students to experience everyday Finnish life, but also helps them adapt to their new surroundings by connecting them with a welcoming Finnish family. Foreign students can apply for a friend family after starting their studies.
