The Finnish higher education system
Inclusivity, personalization, and lifelong learning are some of the foundations of the Finnish education system.
Finland’s teaching method is respected globally. Since its successful reformation in the late 1960s, the country’s education system has consistently ranked as one of the best worldwide.
According to the Helsinki Times, from January to October 2022, there was a 54% increase from the previous year in international students who transferred to Finland for higher education. The rate is also increasing, courtesy of the updated law for the entry and retention of global learners.
There are two types of higher education institutions in the country: Traditional universities and the University of Applied Sciences, or simply UAS.
Traditional universities focus more on research and extend it with their teaching. On the other hand, Universities of Applied Science concentrate on educating students in preparation for their chosen profession.
Our Pathway to Finland program ensures that you can get into your bachelor’s degree program in Finland. After providing the required documents, you may fill out the Pathway application form.
