It concerns the students I was sutdying with, most of them were quiet young and were here mainly to have fun, and not really to study.

Maybe to do a test of selection to be sure of the level of education and the motivations of the students before accepting them in, order to have a good team and have better results.

Before leaving the home country, it is important to be sure that all the papers are organised and signed and mainly about the financial help. Today I am back home and I still did not receive anything from my home university, and it has been quiet difficult to deal with this kind of problems when I was abroad. When the student is abroad, he must avoid staying with other students from the same country in order to be more open to the new life that he is living.

It was possible to stay for more courses. And I had not known it before. I would have been able to travel to neighbor countries (Sweden and Estonia) if I had got a multy-entrance visa before.

Extend the program by new courses – something like Finance or Money&Credit. Hold and update the level they get!

In this country, you have too much free time, so that's good for getting good academic skills, and more over you have free time for another activities like travelling, but if you stay quiet maybe you'd be bored. If you are an active person, I recommend this university fully.

A definate Scandinavian experience. I wouldnt go alone unless your very social and confident. Locals can be shy and hard to approach. International students are easier to get along with. Especially the Germans! They are mad party people! But so are the Finns, take time to get to know them, their culture is interesting and they will find you fascinating too!

Plan how you will get from the airport to the campus (we were not collected and got a bus which took a few hours). If you are going in winter bear in mind it can reach -10 degress and be VERY thick snow cover, you will need winter boots and thermal underwear. Alcohol is expensive. Supermarkets are basic. Buses are usually on time! So are trains.

If you want to get away from the city life and meet down to earth people, who are great fun then this is the place. It is friendly, relaxed and great fun

if you are going in the winter, take plenty of warm clothes, dress like an onion (lots of layers). The Fins are really friendly if not a little quiet, but once they are your friends they are friends for life! Kiitos is thank you, you will use that a lot! No trip to Finland would be complete without a visit to the Sauna! and if you do go in the winter try swimming in the frozen lake! warning though it is not for the feighnt hearted!
