Over the past year I have received support from the academic and administration staff of the University and it made my transition to the European study and work culture extremely positive. I am now a registered Physiotherapist working in Europe and I thank IIHS and Helsinki Metrolpolia University of Applied Sciences for providing me this valuable opportunity in this historically and culturally rich continent”.
