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!
