New Erasmus partners

I represent a university called Novia University of Applied Sciences and a degree program called Civic Activity and Youth Work. We are interested in making an Erasmus agreement with a University, in the United Kingdom, that offers similar education.

Our students study 3,5 years to become Community Educators, Bachelors of Humanities. You can find our curricula on the following webpage

We can offer a study module (24 ECTS) and an internship (6 ECTS) in English during spring 2013. We are situated in the city of Turku, Finland. Turku is welcoming city with about 180 000 inhabitants in the south-west part of Finland two hours from Helsinki.

Please contact me if you are interested in an Erasmus partnership
