Clinical practise and Bachelor’s thesis

About one third of the nursing studies consists of clinical practise, which mostly takes place in various care and operating environments in the health care and social services sector. There are clinical practise periods in every term. Please take into consideration that you may have to work in three shifts in many places where you will be carrying out your clinical training.

The clinical practices take place in Finnish language environments. Therefore fluency in Finnish language is required at least in level B1 in the entrance examination. Also the curriculum includes Finnish language studies for international students.

Your degree will include a Bachelor´s thesis  (15 credits), which is usually carried out in pairs in one of Metropolia's workplace-oriented projects.

Metropolia offers extensive opportunities for international student exchange. You can complete a part of your clinical practices and theoretical studies abroad in Europe, Africa and Asia, and also in Canada. You can also take part in Metropolia's international activities in various ways, for example by attending international intensive courses or participating in different international projects.
