Swedish School of Economics and Business Administration, Helsinki (SHH)

Svenska Handelshögskolan, Helsinki, Arkadiagatan 22 - P.O. Box 479, 00101 Helsinki, Finland
3.85 / 5 based on 138 reviews.
Description:
Swedish is one of the two official languages of Finland since Finland was part of Sweden for more than six centuries until 1809. As early as 1909 the Swedish-speaking business community founded their own college of business. In the 1920's it became an institution of university standing, the present Swedish School of Economics and Business Administration.

The Swedish School of Economics and Business Administration is situated in Helsinki. In order to meet the need for university-level education in Swedish in the fields of economics and business administration in Swedish-speaking Ostrobothnia on the west-coast of Finland, a branch campus was set up in 1980 in the city of Vaasa.

Personal spending habits:
Finnish food is a litttle more expensive than in France. Telephone bills are higher because of international communications. And Internet is useful but you sometimes need to hear your family or boy/girlfriend. My accomodation was really cheap: 1412 FIM with electricity , heating and water included. Travelling is one of the main activities for foreign students in Finland. If you want to make the traditional trips, you had better save money before coming. Personnally, I went to Stockholm for a one day trip (125 FIM by boat), Tallinn (35 FIM by slow boat), Saint Petersbourg (around 1200 FIM for a three day trip: everything include even the visa), Lapland (400 FIM by train).
Food, Travel, Overall, Telephone: was more expensive than at home.
Nightlife: was the same price as at home.
Housing: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
To save money, you should eat like Finnish people. (no vegetables, no fruits) Also, have lunch at university: 13,50 FIM for main course+rice or potatoes+ salad buffet+bread. Very good and cheap!

Personal comments:
if you choose accomodation in the city center you don't need to buy a card for public transportation, everything is within walking distance and furthermore they don't check whether you have a ticket (=free riding is easy and common among exchange students), buy alcohol in Tallinn: tickets for the ship are cheaper on Wednesday + alcohol in Tallinn is 30-50% cheaper, with a valid studend ID you get 50% discount on tickets for the train,

Personal comments:
it was not possible to rent a laptop which is a big problem when you have to do a lot of homework on the computer. concerning saving cost on food: just do not save money to extendedly. rather buy less but to your taste, otherwise food will become boring (but this is my general opinion, does not have to do anything with finland)

With your students card you are also a member of youth hostels. You get also a 50 % discount for railway trips, which were really cheap and comfortable in Finland. One surprise: cellular phones are much more expansive in Finland (home of Nokia) than in Austria.
