Summer School on Arctic Cooperation and Cross-Border Expertise

There are three core modules: Cross-cultural Management (10ECTS, May-June 2017), Digitalization and ICT-services (10ECTS, June, independent work in July 2017), International Marketing (10ECTS, August 2017). NOTE: Exact dates to be confirmed.

In addition to the Arctic cooperation and cross-border expertise, the themes that are closely aligned to the strategic priorities of Lapland University of Applied Sciences are:

  • Managing distances (e.g. skills and tools to support virtual learning environments, distance education)
  • Service business and entrepreneurship (e.g. as workshop subjects)
  • Smart use of natural (and scarce) resources (e.g. project work and excursions)
  • Safety and security (applied in all practices)

Summer school programs generally include pre-course assignments, 2-3h of intensive lessons in the morning, a break, and workshops in the afternoon. Students should have 27h of studies per week, but it does not have to be face-to-face contact time with the teacher.

In July most of the work is done individually which provides the students the opportunity to travel and experience Lapland and Finland at large, while completing their studies.

Fee: 180 euros + accommodation costs
