Opportunities to travel the world

Your college years might be the best time to travel abroad. By attending Finlandia University, your opportunity to experience different cultures and explore the world is enhanced by our ties with many excellent learning institutions in Finland, and our connections with other U.S. institutions of higher education. You will receive assistance and camaraderie that will make the culture jump easy and exciting, all while continuing your education.

Finlandia believes it is important for the student to be exposed to the world. By fostering exchange relations with foreign learning institutions we are able to bring experts from around the world to teach on campus and offer students the opportunity to attend college overseas.
