Helsinki for Students

The capital of Finland with a population of approximately 500 000, Helsinki is big enough to have everything you may want or need, yet small enough to easily find your way. Helsinki is located on the Southern coast of Finland well connected ´by rail and sea to both Sweden, the Baltics and Russia.

The city has several universities and polytechnics, which contributes to a vibrant social scene for students. All universities have their own Student Unions offering plenty of extracurricular activities to students, affordable lunches in student restaurants, sports facilities, clubs and health care.

Helsinki, just as Finland in general, is considered a very clean and safe city. A city that has everything and yet just minutes away from nature. It is for a reason that Helsinki usually, if not tops the list, is one of the most liveable cities in the world!
