Varia has exchange programs as well as other co-operation with educational institutions and businesses in both Europe and the rest of the world. Our main partners are in Germany, France, Estonia, Latvia, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, South Korea and China. Our international affairs team aims to promote tolerance, knowledge of other cultures in an increasingly global working life. Yearly we organise about 60 student mobilities abroad and we receive same number of students to Vantaa. Varia has been actively involved in several mobility (Leonardo and Erasmus+ KA1) projects since 2011. Our international team consist of one full-time coordinator of international affairs and 10 teachers, who work part-time with mobility arrangements, for example finding on-the-job learning placements for students. Varia has participated in strategic partnership projects with topics such as digital skills and counselling, project learning, ECVET tools and entrepreneurship.
