The Satakunta Polytechnic is not an University , but a polytechnic (emh… well, of course), a kind of higher education introduced not so many years ago in northern European states, that is not present in Italy yet, where teachers try to give a more practical approach to the studies, linked with the local industries. Courses are organized in not only few frontal class, in that kind of lesson where the information are transmitted only by the figure of the professor; but here I tried for the first time the PBL system (Problem Based Learning). PBL is a teaching method where students have to face against a problem and organized in a team, research and individual study, they have to resolve all together it.
There is not 1000 pages to study for an exam for every single university credit, but there is a big work on internet research, production of research, small thesis, personal and group presentations. Even if I have to say that I haven't learned so many concept, I have to tell you that all the subject I studied there are very interested and useful for the work's world: how to make public presentations. It is a way of teaching that stimulate in my opinion creativity a makes a person conscious of everything is learned. I really liked it.
“Awesome university that offers free education and very dedicated personnel”
Spain, Undergraduate Business Studies
I completed the degree in International Business which was fully in English. The professors are very dedicated and really helpful which was a big change from my native Spain. There are 2 courses which are Finnish I and Finnish II that are mandatory to graduate but they are really useful during your stay in Finland if you're not a native finnish speaker. All in all, its a wonderful place to study and I recommend it!
