Experience our unique nature and the four seasons
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!

We welcome students from every aspect of the world. Start building your future in Finland!
