UVA campus

The city campus of UVA provides students with countless opportunities for work and recreation — from sitting in a coffee shop with a laptop to internships at large companies. Vaasa has a well developed entertainment infrastructure, but the rhythm of the big city can be distracting for some students. There is a library on the grounds of the university. There are collected scientific works of graduates and teachers of the university, as well as fiction. UVA accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
