DESCRIPTION AND METHODOLOGIES

Karelia University of Applied Sciences provides counselling and guidance, education and workshops for Highly Educated Immigrants. The aim is to help them find study opportunities in higher education and to produce services that facilitate the process of integration.

Guidance and counselling
The staff of SIMHE-Karelia provide personal guidance related to study opportunities for immigrants interested in higher education studies. In addition, support will be provided regarding the practices used in the recognition of prior learning as well as guidance in career planning for those immigrants who have already completed some higher education studies before.

These services are implemented within the national SIMHE network (Supporting Immigrants in Higher Education).
