Testimonial: Minna Rasinaho

Can you introduce yourself in a few words and your role within your university?
I am Minna Rasinaho and I am an Education Coordinator at the Faculty of Sport and Health Sciences. My tasks involve guiding of the students of sports pedagogy in their studies and planning the education in the degrees of sports pedagogy.

What attracted you to the SAMEurope project?
I was attracted to the project because we need to enhance the possibilities of studying and practicing high-level sports at the same time. Internationalization is one of the aims within universities and high-level athletes may have challenges combining these two. In addition, sports students need the experience of studying abroad also.

What do you expect from it?
I’m expecting the dual career students to find it easier to participate in student exchange. And our university to find good partner universities, in which we know the dual career students are able to practice sports and further their studies.

The project was launched in June 2022, what benefits have you already gained on a personal and professional level since?
I have been able to familiarize with the other four universities and how things are done in those universities. I’m sure we have a lot to learn from each other.
