Information about exchange student orientation.

Hanken offers an orientation course for exchange students in order to make the start easier and to prepare you for academic studies and teach you the skills you need to complete your courses at Hanken.

The course comprises two parts:

  • introduction to studies at Hanken and study skills as well as life in Finland
  • academic writing and reference techniques

During the course you get familiar with the characteristics of academic studies at Hanken, the role of the student in the academic community, study techniques and the use of time as well as practicalities at the study start, like course registration, making your schedule, the facilities, and student services. You will practice academic writing and reference techniques through lectures and written assignments.

The course gives you 1 ECTS. Note that all exchange students are automatically registered for the course so no one has to register via Weboodi. The orientation course is mandatory. 

Information on Finland and social and cultural aspects will also be presented during the course. In both Helsinki and Vaasa we will offer a guided sightseeing tour by bus showing the cities and nearby environments.
