Publication info

The fourth publication of the Finnish Network for International Programmes (FINNIPS) is a celebration of the ten years of cooperation conducted within the network. Since the end of 2009, Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (UASs) have joined forces to implement international education marketing and student recruitment together to attract global talents to Finnish higher education. By 2019, the FINNIPS cooperation efforts have created a significant channel for foreign degree students to come to Finland.

The articles of the publication are written by experts of international higher education in Finnish UASs and the Finnish National Agency for Education, EDUFI. They provide versatile views to the development of UASs’ internationalisation and introduce examples on the development of the admission process and international degree programmes. Furthermore, the articles serve various insights regarding the impact of Finnish UASs’ international education on different levels stretching from students’ personal experiences to regional and societal effects.
