In Finland each university and UAS has its own student union. The membership of a student union is compulsory for all Finnish undergraduate students - and for those international students who are studying for a Finnish degree. It is possible for the exchange students to join a student union, too. The membership entitles to a variety of benefits, for example student health care and several student discounts.

Finland is a Nordic welfare state where equality is the fundamental ideology behind education. International rankings agree with us, Finland is a great place to study. Finnish higher education consists of two complementary sectors: universities promoting research and academic education, and universities of applied sciences (=UAS) offering professional higher education with close ties to the working life.

There are two kinds of higher education institutions in Finland - universities and universities of applied sciences (UAS).
