The objective of practical training is to familiarise the student in a guided way with practical work tasks that are central for vocational studies, in particular, and with applying knowledge and skills in working life. Practical training promotes experiential learning and advances the student’s skills, prepares them for work tasks in the field and complements their studies according to the training programme.
Before the practical training period, the parties always sign a written agreement
. The detailed objectives, scope, contents, implementation method and assessment of practical training are specified separately for each training programme. However, the proportion of practical training in degree studies is always at least 30 credits.
Practical training is conducted according to the guidelines of the Lapland University of Applied Sciences.
