Metropolia University of Applied Sciences is one of the most international universities of applied sciences in Finland. We want to educate our students and prepare them for an international world and a global job sector. Metropolia offers degrees in four fields of study (technology, health care and social services, culture and business), which allows us to educate international professionals for the society as a whole.
International activities at Metropolia include international degree programmes, student and teacher mobility, work placement opportunities abroad and various projects. English-language tuition as well as international degree students, lecturers and exchange students create a genuinely international atmosphere at Metropolia. Our employees also regularly visit our international partners, and have a deep understanding of different cultural backgrounds.
Metropolia's staff knows how to make the most of those differences, and create multicultural teaching scenarios. Most of the teaching is practical and project-based, which enables creative teamwork between students from different backgrounds. This leads to both innovative problem-solving and personal growth for the students.
Metropolia has 13 international degree programmes in which the language of instruction is English. Over 1400 international degree students, who represent more than 90 different nationalities, study at Metropolia every year. In addition to the international degree students, Metropolia welcomes around 320 exchange students every year from partner institutions of higher education from all over the world.
