Partner Universities

Academic student and staff exchange is vitally important for the University of Helsinki. UH's exchanges are largely built on the foundation of Erasmus+ programme (Erasmus+ programme countries include EU member states, Turkey, Iceland, Macedonia, Liechtenstein and Norway). Information concerning our Erasmus partners in programme countries can be found on the Mobility Partners page.
