The Christmas Experience Academy Summer School (5 ECTS) is hosted by Multidimensional Tourism Institute -partners: University of Lapland and Lapland University of Applied Sciences. Learning takes place with real companies under the supervision of a team of lecturers from six different European universities. Our lecturers are actively involved in academic research and many of them act as advisers and consultants to private and public organizations.
Rovaniemi is one of the most exciting and magical places in the world. For no other reason, Santa Claus has made it his official residence. Being part of the Christmas Experience Academy will give you the opportunity to study and live in one of the world's leading tourism destinations. Furthermore, you will have access to the backstage of some of the companies responsible for the production of tourism experiences in Rovaniemi.
In addition to your studies in the Christmas Experience Academy, you will also have the chance to relax and enjoy free time with your fellow students. The social programme will give you a chance to see some of the main sights in Rovaniemi and, of course, meet our most famous inhabitant “Santa Claus”.
