Up north on the top of the world, there is an innovative centre of science and thinking. One of the best multidisciplinary universities in the world – The University of Helsinki.
We are the cradle of Finnish civilization. Since 1640 we have contributed significantly to Finnish prosperity and national identity. We have built a fair and an equal society that by many indicators is considered one of the best in the world.
Today we want to share our knowledge and to have a strong global impact. As a multidisciplinary university, we solve challenges that affect us all. Truth, the exploration for new knowledge and boundary-breaking research create opportunities that shape the future of our planet.
Our radical openness combined with active, international co-operation make the University of Helsinki’s impact global. We passionately believe that with the power of thought we can change attitudes, people and society – for the world.
