Personal recommendation
Well, I would strongly recommend it because the university is very welcoming and really takes care of its exchange students. Moreover, it is an opportunity to discover a very different culture. At last, if you like travelling a lot, Helsinki is a very good place to discover Russia, Sweden and Finland, of course. However, you must be aware that life is quite expensive. And that from November to February, the sun goes down very early (around 4 PM) and it is quite cold. (even if in Helsinki, the weather is nicer than in Lapland).

MAKE YOUR MOST OF THE TRIP. IT´S A GREAT EXPERIENCE IF YOU OPEN YOUR MIND. BUT IT ALL DEPENDS OF YOU. YOU ALSO HAVE TO MAKE SOME EFFORTS AND SACRIFICES: NOT EVERYTHING IS DONE FOR YOU. YOU HAVE TO MOVE!!!

I wish I had known...
Given the powerful role of Internet in current information ear,one most important thing I wish to know before going anywhere is that, whether or not the place has an unofficial website,like www.hel.fi,that covers almost every aspect or issue that is important to outsiders of the place.

Well,I wanna recommend the university to open as many international programs as possible,which,in one way,improves its international reputation,and in the other,contributes to the development of the university by enforcing cross-cultural communications.

As I mentioned above,before going anywhere,it is practically important to know as much as possible about your destination. One way is to ask your friends who had been there before,the other way,perhaps the most effective way,is to search information in Internet.In case the above two ways did not work in practice, then one should try to somehow contact local people for information.

Personal recommendation
just do not try to cheat at exams or during courses. in general cheating is not at all desirable but the students at hanken are very keen on that subject. some would tell the instructor if they knew about somebody was cheating. some students were involved in cheating which caused lively discussions throughout the university.

finland was my favourite country already before and here my attitude was enforced. be busy at university, you can learn a lot in those intensive courses. but don't forget to live: travel around the country, there's lots of overwhelming nature to see in finland. concerning neighbours: maybe go to tallinn, st. petersburg, moscow, stockholm. nature is fascinating in all seasons, drinking water is clean and quality of life is high. however, keep in mind that there is a population of about 5m people which makes an extended public transport system (like e.g. the one in vienna) superfluous. you will have to make use of busses rather than of the metro, but still it is not a big problem to get to wherever you are going to. in the city center you can go on foot to all important places.

Helsinki is really a nice and cultural city. But if you go to Finland, you also should love nature.

Personal recommendation
It is one of the accredited Universities in Europe where tuition is free(world standard).This University should open it doors to students from developing countries where there shortages of higher institutions of learning. I would like to thank the University administrators for their high standard education offered to me freely.There are few free Universities with good qualities in the world today.

I have learned better experiences in studying abroad,and I am so delighted.I am more useful and knowledgeable than before.One thinks that he/she knows many things but only realises that he/she knows very little when he/she travels abroad, meet different people,learn different cultures,and see many new things and places.
