SUMMER UNIVERSITIES IN FINLAND – IN BRIEF

There are 20 summer universities in Finland. The courses are held in 124 localities, both in cities and
smaller towns throughout the country. Every year the summer universities enroll nearly 63 000 students,
including over 1100 international students.Summer universities give an opportunity for both personal and
professional development. They operate in tight contact and permanent collaboration with Finnish
universities. Courses are open to everyone regardless of age or prior education. It is essential to notice that
summer universities offer short-term courses, in other words they do not offer degree programmes. The
language of instruction is mainly Finnish but some courses are taught in English. Among our non-finnish
speaking students the most popular courses are on Finnish language and culture.

In addition to student fees, summer universities receive their funding from the state and municipalities.
Summer universities take part in educational and cultural projects that aim for regional and European
development. Therefore our role as educators is important.

The planning of the programme is done on a yearly basis in co-operation with the universities.
Interdisciplinary programmes at the summer universities are produced in the fields of cultural studies,
European studies, Finnish language and culture, art, dance, music, theatre, education, environmental
sciences, health care and social sciences. Please note that the study programme varies according to the
summer university.

The Association of Summer Universities in Finland is a national body founded in 1972. The aim is to
take care of the interests of summer universities, provide information and collect statistics about their
activities. The association also acts as a coordinating link between various interest groups and summer
universities both nationally and internationally.
