Why Finland?

Finland is home to some of the world’s best universities and this is a big reason why international students choose to study there. Eight Finnish universities were ranked in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-2016, in its global top 500. Finland leaves behind the traditional methodologies to give way to an innovative pedagogy, in which creativity, experimentation and collaboration are fostered over memorization. Education is personalized and competition is avoided. The Finnish teachers are very qualified and are close to you at all times. They encourage participation by working in groups and away from unidirectional classes and creating a dynamic classroom environment. They must be in a constant process of knowledge updating, because this is required by the State, also benefitting from advice from other teachers with more experience. All this, they have the necessary tools to renew their teaching methods and attract the attention of students. The figure of the professor receives a great appreciation on the part of the Finnish society and is one of the most respected professions in the country.

Finland is considered to have one the best education systems in the world. The most unique and greatest things for international students in Finland is that the education is completely free.
