Finland is a Northern European nation bordering Sweden, Norway, and Russia. Its capital, Helsinki, occupies a peninsula and surrounding islands in the Baltic Sea. Helsinki is home to the 18th-century sea fortress Suomenlinna, the fashionable Design District, and diverse museums. The Northern Lights can be seen from the country's Arctic Lapland province, a vast wilderness with national parks and ski resorts.
Finland's world-leading higher education system offers more than 400 English-taught bachelor's and master's degree programs in 13 universities and 22 universities of applied sciences (UAS). The universities also offer English-taught doctoral degree options. Finnish higher education institutions have over 20 000 international students studying in several locations around Finland. All universities and universities of applied sciences have scholarship opportunities for international students.
Finland's higher education is one of the best in the world. According to statistics, it is the most peaceful and sustainable country in the world. International students rate Finland as the best place to study in Europe. Finnish education is high-quality and studying in Finland is relatively affordable. Study materials are often free because many of the books can be found online these days. Even though some international students have to pay tuition fees, it is still cheaper than in many other European countries. Opportunity for grants, tuition fee exemptions and the possibility to have a job while studying was important. The cost of studies, on the other hand, weighed just as much too all international students who choose Finland. Universities should offer students a calm place to focus throughout their studies. Staff should be also helpful towards whatever issue students face during studies.
