Workplace visits and providing life knowledge to students

The student organizations and lecturers of higher education institutions organize visits to enterprises and working life events. They also gladly invite employers to give presentations on work opportunities. Giving the presentation in English ensure that also international students are able to participate. Additionally, working life experts can contribute to teaching by giving expert lectures.

Students want more information about working life, especially by visiting workplaces. Planning a workplace visit in cooperation with the students actively challenges them to think about their desired workplace – and the importance of networking and building contacts, the Finnish work culture and their knowledge of occupations in Finland.

Workplace visits can be integrated into nearly any subject. It is possible to incorporate a visit to a specific course or a combination of courses and subjects – a large number of participants enables organizing bigger events.
