Studying in Finland
In Finland, you can witness all of our four seasons, since they are all truly unique. There is a beautiful, lush summer with astonishing midnight sun; colorful, crisp autumn; a perfectly white winter wonderland, and finally – light's promise and nature's awakening: the spring.
Finnish higher educational institutions are mostly funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture, and the quality of teaching is carefully overseen. Higher education institutions react to the needs of the society, business and industry in their curricula and teaching.
