World-leading higher education institutions

Universities

Finland has two types of higher education institutions: universities and universities of applied sciences (UAS).
English-taught degree programmes are offered on bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels.

Universities of applied sciences offer professionally oriented higher education on bachelor's and master's level, and have strong ties with working life and regional development.

Universities focus on scientific research and the education they provide is based on it. Universities offer bachelor's, master's and doctoral (PhD) level programmes.
