Small size is our greatness: our university is a close community – no-one is left behind. Our students think that our university has a good spirit of togetherness and a great atmosphere.
We have close ties with the businesses of the region and use actual case studies in our teaching combining theoretical knowledge with practical examples.
Vaasa enjoys a position at the forefront of flourishing urban regions – and no wonder: we have Finland's largest hub of energy companies and plenty of jobs, six higher education units, the sea, and people who have been proven to be happy and energetic.
You will study on a beautiful campus on the coast, right next to the city centre. We have comfortable spaces for independent study and group work, lecture theatres and student meeting places. The buildings are close together, so journeys are short.
Your studies will also bring you a group of friends who can also act as your support network when you enter working life. Or get involved in our active society and student organisation activities and get to know new people!
We are not heading out into the world – we are already there. Get to know our international students, study in English, go on exchange, apply for summer internships at international companies...
