The weather seems to return to the cold again, and I hope you are well prepared.

With the arrival of the Chinese New Year, we invited several Chinese students who are currently studying at Xamk to introduce us about Chinese culture and life in Chinese universities.

In this regard, I hope to learn more about China from Xamk’s local or international students and increase the possibility of students going to China for exchange studies.

At the same time, it will also be an excellent warm-up process for teachers about to go to China for some of our projects.

We also prepared some Chinese snacks, traditional Chinese card games, and a fun quiz about Chinese culture.

If you are interested in this event, you are welcome to come.

From below you can find the schedule of events:

Xamk Kouvola campus, room 357

  1. Chinese culture (lunar new year)

  5. Advantages (and possible disadvantages) of studying in Finland and at Xamk
