Give yourself the best education in the world

“It’s simple, really… We believe that everyone in the world should have a shot at a superb college experience, and that’s how Edunation was born.”

Roughly 40 years ago, Finland implemented huge changes in the education system and has consistently been at the top of the global education rankings ever since. The Finnish educational excellence is something that every prospective student has heard of, and thus many international students come to Finland to get their degree. The difference between Finland’s higher education institutions and those in other countries is that in Finland, the people that are in charge of the education system, are all experienced teachers, not politicians. The education system in place is thus focused on helping students learn in the best possible way, instead of merely pushing students through.
