International students coming to Saimaa University of Applied Sciences and Lappeenranta University of Technology have a chance to participate in the Meet a Local Family Programme.

The programme brings together international students and South Karelian families. The aim is to help foreign students learn more about Finnish culture and family life. In return, the students give the host families a greater understanding and appreciation of other cultures.

The programme for Saimaa UAS students is coordinated by the international office and is conducted in cooperation with Lappeenranta University of Technology and the Evangelical Lutheran Church.

  • volunteer programme
  • students and families decide how often they meet and what they do together
  • usual activities include swimming, skiing, going to national league games (basketball or ice hockey) or just enjoying a meal together. It's all up to you and the family.
