Finland is situated in northern Europe and neighbors Sweden, Norway and Russia. It is a member of the European Union where it represents both Nordic democracy and way of living. Equality in wealth is a key-driver in our society.
For an international student Finland is both an exotic and a safe target country. Finnish society is credible: a networked and transparent open civic society, where education is always a top first priority.
Finland is a global leader in information technology and also enjoys gender equality and low levels of corruption. It has got one of the most advanced education systems in the world, and as a result of its innovative mindset and investing in education we are blessed with high standard of living and quality of life.
Finland’s universities, like the rest of its education system, are among the best in the world. The Finnish government takes responsibility for educating each and every citizen, which means free education is available all the way through graduate school for students who can get admitted. At present, the availability of free public education is not limited to citizens of Finland – foreigners and exchange students can also take advantage of the free educational services paid for by the Finnish government. There have been efforts in the government in recent years to change this policy due to budget pressures, but for now it remains in place. People come to Finland to study a number of different subjects, but universities here are especially well known for their programs in architecture and design.
