Higher education in Finland: fairy tale or reality?

   After graduating from high school, every graduate is faced with the question: where to go next? The choice is not rich: study or work.

Higher education in Finland

Free higher education in Finland.

   The only thing most people know about Finland is that it is the official residence of Santa Claus and the birthplace of Nokia phones. But if you look closely, you can find a lot of most attractive things in this country: beautiful nature, hospitable people and ... an education system. Surprisingly, higher education here is free, not only for Finnish citizens, but also for foreigners. The higher education system in Finland is represented by universities and polytechnics (institutes).
   The educational system of Finland unites 29 polytechnics. Polytechnics work closely with enterprises and organizations, which makes it possible to get a good practice in the chosen specialty. Education up to the bachelor's degree is free.
Citizens of the CIS can enter Finnish universities immediately after graduation on the basis of a certificate of complete secondary education. For those who already have a primary or complete higher education behind them, it is much easier - they can simply “transfer” credits in subjects that coincide with the program of a Finnish university.
   Most universities teach in Finnish, although there are some that teach in English. Those wishing to study in the language of Shakespeare must provide a TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) certificate.
   Unlike free education in FinlandYou still have to pay for accommodation. On average, a student needs about 400-500 euros per month for various needs. Fortunately, during the academic year, students have the right to work, but not more than 20 hours a week, and unlimited during the holidays. Finding a job without knowing Finnish is difficult. The average earnings of the lucky ones is about 10 euros per hour. The state also helps the student outside the walls of the institute - so there are 50 percent discounts on transport costs. The use of libraries and the Internet is free.
   Upon graduation, the student receives a bachelor's or master's degree and a European-style diploma of higher education, with which you can get a job in any country in the world.  
   Finnish companies are willing to hire Russian-speaking graduates, as many firms work closely with Russia. The Finnish Migration Service is also very loyal to university graduates who have found a stable job.
   Those wishing to continue their studies can get a second higher education in Finland or any other country in the world.
