Study in Finland

The Finlandia University Finnish Exchange program gives students the opportunity to experience Finnish life and culture by studying at institutions of higher education in Finland.

Students are expected to pay travel, personal expenses, textbooks, and board while in Finland, although they are considered enrolled at Finlandia University and are eligible for institutional and Title IV funds to assist in covering the cost of tuition. Housing and tuition costs are paid to the university. Coursework completed in Finland is accepted as transfer credit.
