Publication info

Finnish Network for International Programmes (FINNIPS) is a cooperation body, which, in 2013, brings together 22 Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) and over 50 of their Bachelor-level Degree Programmes conducted in English. The main task of the network is to arrange entrance examinations to these programmes in a selection of countries outside Finland.

This publication illuminates the reasons for arranging entrance examinations abroad in pursuance of describing the development and activities of the FINNIPS network. The depiction is done as a part of a wider mission to shed light on the role and significance of international degree programmes in Finnish UASs. The articles of the volume approach UAS education from various perspectives and together, they provide a comprehensive picture of the many different ways in which internationalisation can be enhanced by way of joint efforts.
