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 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).

This girl needs no introduction! Oona is the face you have seen in many social events from the student union, TTO. She takes care of TTO’s social media and magazine and goes beyond by promoting TTO to all students. She just started her 2nd year in bachelor’s degree in International Business. Compared to her 1st year where it’s more theoretical, more exams and teaching of the basics, she feels her 2nd year studies are more independent and assuming one has learned the basics in the 1st year, adapt it to projects and studies in 2nd year. She also like the fact that she gets to hang out and work on projects with some colleagues whom she barely see during her 1st year. Apart from her studies, she also felt that she has learned a lot volunteering in TTO. The role has been challenging in the beginning, having to balance between her classes and her role but she has now learned to manage it better. Overall, she feels her role in TTO has given her a good experience, she got to meet a lot of people outside her degree programme whom she may not have met and she learned how to use different softwares to do graphics design and the magazine. She also feels she is now more confident in writing. Now she looks forward to next semester where she will start her module in entrepreneurship. She wants to learn what she can do, what is she capable of doing and she hopes to put all the skills and learnings into practice in the entrepreneur module. #tamk_uas #tamk4sbs #tamk #tampereuniversities #finnips #studyinfinland #studyineurope #internationalbusiness #internationalbusinessdegree #finland #tampere #appliedscienceuniversity

Ulina, who already has a master’s degree under her belt, decided to study in TAMK’s International Business bachelor’s degree to gain more knowledge about business and she hopes that this degree will also help improve her employment opportunities. She comes from a family of entrepreneurs and business has always interest her, especially customer service, selling and marketing. She is currently juggling her studies with her current part time job as a language teacher in Pirkanmaan Opisto. She said there are more tasks in this degree programme than her previous master’s degree and more reading which needs to be adapted to their tasks. There is also more team spirit in the study environment as students have to work together to complete their tasks. Team work can sometimes be challenging as there is a diverse range in age and culture as well as characteristics, but she is using her experience working in customer service and help her team with their tasks deadlines and responsibilities. She is happy with her team whom she feels makes a lot of effort in sharing the work load, deadlines and responsibilities. The team also ensures they get together once every bi-weekly to socialize and build the team spirit. #tamk_uas #tamk4sbs #tamk #tampereuni #finnips #studyinfinland #studyineurope #finland #universitiesinfinland #universitylife #studentstories #internationalbusiness #internationalbusinessdegree
