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. See the great variety of Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes offered by the network in eight fields of study!

The Finnish Network for International Programmes (FINNIPS) is a cooperation network formed by 10 Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS). These Universities of Applied Sciences offer close to 50 degree programmes that are fully conducted in English. The majority of the UASs' degree programmes are at Bachelor's level but there are also several Master's programmes to choose from. 

The main function of the FINNIPS network is to arrange entrance examinations for the UASs’ English-taught degree programmes in countries outside Finland. In 2021, you can take the exams fully online. In addition, FINNIPS promotes the various study options of the network's UASs in virtual study fairs, social media platforms and through various other channels 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 Admission Services' contact information and get your questions answered!

Instagram-kuva käyttäjältä diasporaglitzmagazine Everyone has their story and every story is different. My counsel is that immigrants should have realistic expectations, adjust quickly to their new environment, educate themselves based on the needs of their new society (Hands on jobs) and be ready to learn the language for communication is a bridge between immigrant and host. There is plenty of opportunity around but you just need to have the right attitude, associate with the right people and give your best.

Facebook post by Finnips Hi there! Did you apply to FINNIPS network's UASs' degree programmes in the fields of Nursing, Business, Technology or Tourism? Great if you did! There is extensive cooperation within these study fields, which means that many degree programmes use the same online entrance examination. Check the cooperating degree programmes at the FINNIPS website: https://www.finnips.fi/en/entrance-exams/ If you applied to more than one degree programme within the same study field and cooperation group, you will receive only one invitation to the entrance examination from one of the network's UASs. The FINNIPS network's UASs have started sending the invitation letters to these joint entrance exams yesterday. When you receive the invitation letter by e-mail, please make sure to 1) read it carefully and to 2) read it carefully again 🧐 This is the best way for you to get ready and to make sure that your equipment is suitable for the online exam. In any questions regarding your personal admissions process, please make sure to contact the UASs that invited you to the FINNIPS online entrance examination. #finnips
