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 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 over 40 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 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 Admission Services' contact information and get your questions answered!

I started the IBM program in September and while trying to keep balance between work, studies and family can sometimes be challenging, it has all been worth the effort so far. Currently, I have experienced that the program is a good mix of theory and practice, allowing the students to utilise their past experiences and to apply the new learnings directly in our day to day jobs. Our team consists of a group of international and diverse people, so it has been extremely interesting to share experiences and learn through them. The way the program is set up, we do have contact lesson every second week which has made us quite a tight knit group. In-between the contact lessons, we work on joint projects utilising digital platforms for video conferencing and document sharing. I would recommend the program to all business professionals who would like to update, upgrade or build their know-how through theory and practical examples.

Tom is currently in his third year within the International Business programme. He started his practical training with the Global Education Department at TAMK in May. He is extremely happy that he was able to join such an amazing team of professionals. The main task of the department is globally exporting Finnish education from TAMK. His duties included hosting groups, planning activities, teaching specific subjects, researching, being an ambassador of TAMK and working with the team in a variety of other ways. During his practical training, he has rediscovered his joy of teaching and educating others as well as himself. He has worked closely with Mediapolis and Proakatemia as well as people from the TAMK main campus. His coursework in conjunction with his past experience teaching has been valuable. He stayed in Tampere for his practical training as he thought it was the best choice for him. Beginning in January, he will take the marketing module while also continuing to work for Global. In addition, he has begun working on his thesis. His goal is to finish in May 2020 and then continue working for the Global Education Department at TAMK. #tamk4sbs #tamk_uas #tamk #tampereuniversities #finnips #studyintampere #studyinfinland #studyineurope #finlanduniversity #studentstories

Mari Helenius started working as a lecturer in TAMK 10 months ago. After being an Entrepreneur for about 20 years in the family business, she wanted to experience something new. Currently she teaches and coaches topics on entrepreneurship, marketing and professional selling. She enjoys teaching a group of international students in a multi-cultural environment. She loves it when she gets a lightbulb ‘aaahh’ moment from her students in the class or during team discussions. She also enjoys the International Business staff team who are friendly and made her feel welcome, she feels the team is 1 big happy family! 😊 She loves it when students come to school motivated to learn and develop their skills for their future. She wants her students to think in their own way and develop their own opinion and ideas while she teaches them the methods and tools. When students apply the knowledge gained and connect the dots using the information and knowledge she provided, she feels happy, satisfied and in return, she feels she is also growing along with them. She is motivated by her students’ motivation to learn and develop themselves for their future. She said she is proud when students have learned something, not just from her courses, but also from other courses, put them together and develop something for themselves. It would also be great if they are then brave enough to use the knowledge and experience gained, to go out and have the courage to try and apply it in the real world and then continuously learn and adjust their ideas, methods and opinions as they go through real-life experience. #tamk4sbs #tamk_uas #tamk #tampereuniversities #teachersstories #finnips #studyintampere #studyinfinland #studyineurope #internationalbusinessdegree
