University of Helsinki

The University of Helsinki is Finland’s largest and oldest academic institution and an innovative centre of science and thinking. Since 1640, we have contributed to the establishment of a fair and equal society that is considered one of the best in the world. Today, our multidisciplinary academic community solves problems that affect us all – with the power of knowledge, for the world.

The culture is similar to the culture in Wageningen. Everyone is very friendly and the teachers are very approachable. The courses that I followed were quite small and in most courses there was quite a lot of group work.
