The parents of a student have a very important role when choosing a place for studying abroad. For parents to support their child in making the right decision, it is essential to receive correct and reliable information on the institution. Below, we have collected some aspects of the University of Helsinki we feel are the most important ones when choosing the future institution.

Graduates succeed on the labour market

The University of Helsinki has an immaculate reputation and the education received here is highly valued anywhere. It makes sense to study;  especially, a degree earned at a reputable institution makes seeking employment much easier. According to the survey by the UH Career Services, the university education improves not only theoretical skills in the chosen field but also analytical and systematical thinking as well as information retrieval expertise and problem solving skills. All these are in great demand on the labour market.

Safe surroundings and a tolerant atmosphere

We are very well aware of the fact that safety is one the key elements when choosing a university. Studying abroad is truly a giant step, and a lot of serious thinking and planning is needed before making the decision. Safety is also significant from the point of view of successful studies. Finland is a safe country and one of the best countries in the world to live and study in, a city full of events, culture and services.

In Finland, free healthcare and education are offered to all citizens. The Nordic welfare state is not only a system of social security but also a society based on a set of shared values.

The Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) provides general, mental and oral health care services for students of the universities and other institutions of higher education.The FSHS promotes students' health, wellbeing and ability to study as well as the capacities they need to be able to study.
