Vierumäki Summer School offers open university studies for all those who are interested in the sport field. The studies include innovating future sport services and developing pedagogical thinking, adding up to 10 ETC. The programme is organized by Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences at the Vierumäki campus, only 1,5h drive from Helsinki.

“Learning by observing, doing and innovating”

Haaga-Helia studies are process-oriented and give the students an excellent combination of hands-on skills along with a strong theoretical knowledge base. Vierumäki pedagogy is all about innovating, practical work and observing in real-life working projects. As a pedagogical foundation, students have an active role. In this active environment students are constantly challenged to review their knowledge and to generate new creative solutions for problems. There are hardly any traditional lectures. The study methods used in the programme are information retrieval, data processing and analyzing. Theories are tested in practice and the outcomes and experiences are reflected with peers.

We want to bring out our learning-methods for all who are interested in learning by innovating, doing and observing. Intensive Summer School have been designed to challenge and inspire you in your sports studies!
