FINNIPS - Finnish Network for International Programmes: Get an English-taught Higher Education Degree in Finland!

What is FINNIPS?

FINNIPS = your way to get a higher education degree in Finland!

FINNIPS is your way to study in English in Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences and to obtain an internationally-recognised and professionally-oriented higher education degree.

The Finnish Network for International Programmes (FINNIPS) is a cooperation network formed by 13 Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS). These Universities of Applied Sciences offer over 30 degree programmes that are fully conducted in English. The majority of the UASs' degree programmes are at Bachelor's level but in 2017-2018 there is also one Master's programme that arranges its entrance exams outside Finland through the FINNIPS network.

The main function of the FINNIPS network is to arrange entrance examinations for the UASs’ English-taught degree programmes in countries outside Finland. In addition, FINNIPS participates in study fairs and exhibitions to promote the various study options of the network's UASs and to spread information about studying in Finland!

Admission Services will help you

Each UAS has its own Admission Services. For any questions about the degree programmes, admission process and entrance examinations, please contact the Admission Services of the UAS of your choice. See the list of Admission Services at the Studyinfo website.

Finnips has published three books concerning international education. You can download and read FINNIPS network's publications for free.

An air of calm lands on each Xamk campus this week as our students and lecturers have a week off to enjoy the Finnish winter. In Finland this week isn’t called half term, midterm or spring break- over here we simply call it ‘skiing break’ which is pretty appropriate if you look at the weather, don’t you think?! #xamk #mikkeli #finland #hiihtoloma #studyinfinland #finnips #halfterm
