International education projects

University of Helsinki is actively participating in international education projects, such as Erasmus+ funded projects. Throughout many years, UH has been successfully contributing to a variety of projects developing education, contributing to innovation and capacity building both as coordinator and a partner. On this page you can find information about our ongoing and former education projects.
University of Helsinki as project partner

University of Helsinki Faculties, units and degree programmes are encouraged to actively participate in developing teaching and education by taking part in international cooperation projects. University of Helsinki has set internal guidelines for taking part in externally funded education projects. The guidelines are used as the starting point for preparing for new project initiatives or taking part in external project proposals.

Project funding applications need to be well prepared in cooperation with the project participants and enough time has to be reserved for the preparation of the project funding application. University of Helsinki can only take part in projects for which the funding application and budget have been prepared in cooperation.

If a partner wishes to invite us to join a project proposal, all documentation related to the project proposal must be submitted to the University of Helsinki for revision well in advance before the application is submitted to the funder. Project proposals sent close to the application round deadline will be automatically discarded.

Some examples of HEI ICI projects coordinated by the University of Helsinki

The Higher Education Institutions' Institutional Cooperation Instrument (HEI ICI) supports cooperation projects between higher education institutions in Finland and the developing world that are designed to enhance higher education provision in these countries. The projects support the higher education institutions in developing their subject-specific, methodological, educational and administrative capacities.

Finland’s Ministry for Foreign Affairs provides funding for the programme through its development cooperation funds and the Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI) administrates the programme.

University of Helsinki has been actively participating to the HEI ICI programme for several years.
