FINNIPS - Finnish Network for International Programmes: Entrance Examinations outside Finland

What is FINNIPS?

The Finnish Network for International Programmes (FINNIPS) is a cooperation network formed by 17 Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS). These Universities of Applied Sciences offer over 40 Bachelor’s Degree Programmes that are fully conducted in English.

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!

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.

I'm Elisa Kemppainen, 3rd year #BBA student. I love the International Business degree because it opens doors all over the world. During our studies, we carried out a considerable amount of real work based projects with local and external companies which provided me with valuable experience and contacts. My English has really improved and I have learnt a lot about the world of international business and marketing. At KAMK, it’s not just about reading: you get the chance to be active and actually do things which are useful in working life! KAMK has a very international atmosphere and every semester new exchange students and foreign degree students make the campus a livelier place. KAMK actively helps and encourages students to go on exchange: I did my eight-month exchange at Lethbridge College, Canada. My exchange period went off without a hitch and KAMK looked after me by keeping in touch before, during and after the exchange. I doubt such care would be available in every university of applied sciences. At #KAMK, what I enjoyed the most were the real work based projects, the Russian Business course, which included a week-long study visit to St Petersburg, and my eight month exchange in Canada. #humansofkamk #aloitaomatarinasi #kamkelämää #kamk #opiskelijankajaani #finnips #studyinfinland #lifeatkamk
