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!

Instagram-kuva käyttäjältä tamk4sbs #Repost of Tampere Student Ambassadors Blog📝 Erasmus+ traineeship: How I found a position and prepared for the journey Finding a traineeship Keep in mind that there are three application rounds in each academic year and we can apply for the grant via the Mobility-Online system. The funny story is, I applied and got offered the grant in spring 2018, but my process of finding a traineeship took months, and I only started working in summer 2019. I personally found that the difficult part is not getting the grant, but getting the traineeship that suits you. Here are some of my own tips and useful suggestions for traineeship search: 1. Have a clear idea of what kind of traineeship you want to do and where you want to be. 2. Check your university emails. Tampere University’s Erasmus office provides a huge help as they often forward traineeship offers to all students who recently got Erasmus+ grants. 3. I actually got my traineeship position thanks to one of my friend’s recommendation. So yes, connect with other students, especially ones who also got Erasmus+ traineeship grants. 4. If you are interested in working for a particular company but don’t see that they are hiring trainees, don’t hesitate to send them an email introducing yourself and your current situation of holding an Eramus+ grant. 5. Don’t be shy to ask for help from your supervisor, professor and faculty coordinator. They are people who have various contacts in their academic field and might know if there is an opportunity around. 6. Some student associations offer really good traineeship programmes such as AIESEC, IAESTE, FiMSIC (for medical students), ELSA (for law students). 7. Some useful websites: Eramus; The European jobs network EURES; Erasmus In School; 📝Sophie Nguyen 🔗 • • • • • #tamk_uas #tamk4sbs #tamk #tampereuni #humanpotentialunlimited #ihminenratkaisee #finland #tampere #studyinfinland #finnips #educationinfinland #studyineurope #internationalbusiness #erasmusinternship

In PackAlliance project’s workshop Finnish partners and stakeholders concentrated on the competency of plastic packaging operators on our way to circular economy. What kind of competency we should have in the future? There is a need for a comprehensive understanding of common terms, communication, cooperation and value chain — without forgetting consumers. 🔗 • • • • • #tamk_uas #tamk4sbs #tamk #tampereuni #humanpotentialunlimited #ihminenratkaisee #finland #tampere #studyinfinland #finnips #educationinfinland #studyineurope #internationalbusiness #circulareconomy #plasticpackaging
