The Finnish Success Story

Finland became an independent state on 6 December 1917. During the past century, Finland has grown from a poverty stricken, civil war ravaged, rural society into an internationally recognised success story of education and well-being.

Our success is based on education, research, and making decisions together. Today we are heading into a new century with courage, determination and a strong desire to share our knowledge. The University of Helsinki is proud of its contribution to the success of the Finnish nation and society.

We empower you to make a difference!
