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).

The majority of the UASs' degree programmes are at Bachelor's level but there are also several Master's programmes to choose from.

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!
