Applications in Finland Now Open
Written on Sunday, 10 January 2016 21:08

Applications are now open for programmes, taught through English, in Finland.  The application window opened on 8th January, and closes on 27th January. Finland in is in the top four providers, by numbers of programmes offered, of English-taught programmes, topped by only by the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. If you are prepared for its dark winters, the quality of its education and its free education (no tuition fees) are worth considering. 

Though there are no fees in Finland, bear in mind that the cost of living in Helsinki are similar to those of living in Manchester, and significantly less than living in London. However, do note that rents outside Helsinki [e.g. Turku] can be more than half of those pertaining in Helsinki. Most of the programmes, taught through English, are offered by the highly employment-focused Universities of Applied Sciences, rather than the more academic research universities.

Many [but not all] of the programmes require an entrance test for entry [though this isn’t usually particularly challenging] and many of the Universities of Applied Sciences run their entrance tests in London, usually in April. Often, only one exam is needed for one discipline and your results are recognised by many of the faculties in Finland that offer programmes in this same discipline.

Currently popular with UK- and Irish-based students are the excellent Engineering [ see here ] and Nursing [see here ], as well as the popular Physiotherapy degree in Satakunta, near Turku, in Eastern Finland. Though entry requirements are low, one word of warning though. Students are usually expected to provide A-Level or Leaving Cert., or equivalent, results by mid-July: this usually rules out current year school leavers for entry this year. If you are leaving school this year, you are likely to be required to take a gap year, though some institutions do offer a second start date in February every year, and some do have a work around for our results being so late.
