 Tiina Piipponen

Tiina works as an International Coordinator and Lecturer at Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences, Finland. Her education brought her to Keele University, UK, for a Bachelor’s degree in international relations, to the International Master’s programme in International Relations and European Studies at the University of Tampere, Finland, and to the University of Helsinki, where she earned her Master’s degree in intercultural encounters. Her experience as an international student inspired her interest in mobility and internationalisation matters for higher education institutions, an area she has worked in since 2002 with a particular focus on the fields of engineering and technology. Her work includes study abroad advising as well as managing mobility programmes and related international cooperation. She also teaches student groups about intercultural learning and is currently involved in developing and implementing an intercultural training course for study abroad. She has served as a Resource person since 2013 and is currently a Steering group member of the EAIE Expert Community Mobility Advising.
