TAMK International Services hosted a visit by colleagues from JAMK University of Applied Sciences: International Relations Manager Nina Björn, International Relations Planner Maarit Sinikangas and International Relations Secretaries Anu Lietonen and Sini Nousiainen.
The aim of the visitors was to familiarize themselves with TAMK International Services’ operations and how they differ from their own. This was best accomplished by presentations both ways and vivid discussions with each visitor’s counterparts.
During the day it became clear that although methods may vary, objectives and outcomes are quite the same. Within the JYTA consortium (Jyväskylä-Tampere, naturally) collaboration has always been close and international activities have been a spearhead in many cases.
Together we can offer more to our foreign guests and students and can share resources to focus on the essential. After all - Jyväskylä is not that far away.
Inland Finland rules!
