In March 2011 we were excited at TAMK when our first International Week for Engineering was about to begin. The invitations were sent six months earlier and followed by planning, innovation, organisation, messaging, preparations and finishing. Now we were finally about to welcome our foreign guests.
About a year and a half ago, TAMK started a cooperation project with the South Italian University of Salerno. The multiphase process with negotiations and visits eventually led to beginning of cooperation with the Department of Management & Innovation Systems’ 3CLAB laboratory. The laboratory aims at supporting local and international organisations in different phases of internationalisation by producing education, research and services in the field of cross-cultural competence.
Movement of young people from one country to another for higher education is a common picture of the times. In order to continue education in the host country with ease and comfort international students should build their relationship with the surroundings, have their stake in nature and educate themselves to the host country culture as much as possible. Things may not be so favourable in the beginning, which may also affect learning outcomes. However, time passes and gradually it becomes easier.
