The University of Helsinki has the privilege of being the only Nordic university at which it is possible to study all the Romance languages of the Iberian peninsula: Spanish, Portuguese, Galician and Catalan. Courses in Basque are also given yearly.

Part of the teaching is funded by foreign institutions: one of the Portuguese language lectureships is funded by the Camões Institute, which is under the Portuguese Foreign Ministry.
