Savonia security management has outlined that Savonia will not send or receive exchange students or trainees in late spring / summer 2021.

Savonia will accept nominations and applications for the academic year 2021-2022. Savonia will outline in April 2021, whether it can host exchange students on campus in autumn 2021. We prefer receiving nominations and applications for spring 2022 due to the uncertainty of the autumn semester 2021.
