Studying in Finland
The beauty of Finland lies within the contrasts. From endless daylight in the summer to the northern lights and glowing darkness of the winter. Finland is green, sustainable, innovative, and extremely safe. It’s also home to 5.5 million people, Santa Claus, 3 million saunas, and almost 200,000 lakes.
Apart from the stunning nature, Finland has gained worldwide recognition for its education system. Finland is one of the most educated nations in the world, and education is one of the cornerstones of the Finnish welfare society. Finland’s system of higher education is based on a dual model, where academically oriented traditional universities and more practically oriented universities of applied sciences complement each other. Both awards Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees.
Studying in Finland is very student-centric. Relationships between students and teachers are relaxed and informal. While teamwork is quite common in Finnish classrooms, students are also given a considerable amount of independence in their studies, and creativity and critical thinking are highly valued virtues by universities in Finland.
The high-quality education and research have resulted in many successful innovations such as the heart rate monitor, xylitol, pedestrian reflectors, flight recorder or the “black box”, and companies such as Nokia, Kone, Linux, Supercell (Clash of Clans), Rovio (Angry Birds).
Finland’s 13 universities and 23 universities of applied sciences offer a large variety of study programs in various field, including Bachelor and Master degree programs, summer courses, and short courses.
