University Pathway Finland (Science & Technology)

Your route to a world-class education

The University Pathway Finland (Science & Technology) programme is offered by Aalto University and Tampere University, Finland's two largest universities in the area of technology. By completing the digital Pathway studies, international students have the chance to progress to study in one of the selected degree programmes at Tampere University. In 2023, there is no progression option at Aalto University.

Aalto University is founded on high-quality research, education, impact, and shared values of responsibility, courage, and collaboration. At Aalto University, we are committed to identifying and solving grand societal challenges and building an innovative and sustainable future. We offer teaching and learning that is future-led and strongly emphasises collaboration with industries and society. Our highly international university is home to 12,000 students and a staff of 4,500. 

Tampere University is one of the most multidisciplinary universities in Finland. Almost all internationally recognised fields of study are represented at the university. We bring together research and education in technology, health and society. Our collaboration with our partners is built on our strengths, unique combinations of scientific disciplines and applied expertise. Tampere University is a community of 21,000 students and close to 4,000 staff members.

Build your future in Finland

Finland is renowned for its excellent education, safe and well-working society and clean nature. Finland is among the most gender-equal societies in the world and offers equal opportunities for everyone.

Boasting the largest technology hub of the Nordic countries, Finland is a world leader in information technology, business, design and many other academically centred fields.  We are known for world-class engineering, disruptive technology, architecture and design.

Nature plays an essential role in the daily lives and identity of Finns. Characteristic of Finland and its nature are the four seasons – warm and bright summer nights contrasting with the peaceful darkness of winter months. And – if you’re lucky – the magic of the northern lights!
