Personal recommendation
This university is currently trying to appeal more to international students, so they are working hard to provide programs and travel for foreign students studying there.

Overall
The IBL program at Uni of Helsinki is very well structured. One finishes most of the courses in the 1st year and in the second year, you are free to pursue your internships or focus only on master's thesis. The teachers are good and the administrative staff is very prompt and helpful. Wide range of courses to select from. You can choose language studies and club it with your course credits. They have JOO services through which you can take courses from other universities and the credits will added to your IBL program. Student life is good, many activities take place which a student can benefit from.

Overall
I have studied in the Asian studies programme in University of Helsinki and graduated as Bachelor of Arts in 2020. Now I am doing master's course in Area and Cultural Studies.

My studies have included courses about politics and economy of China and Japan, as well as culture and history. Japanese language teaching is of the highest quality, and we have native teachers from 3rd course onwards, speaking only Japanese in class. My minor studies have included political science studies and development studies, with some development economics studies as well.

Pros
Good level of teaching, especially Japanese language
Cons
Recently government's austerity policies have cut resources, so not as many courses available compared to 4 years ago.

You do good!!! Motivate the people to learn more Finnish - to know this language is more than nothing the key to Finnish social life.

ABOUT
The University of Helsinki (Helsingin yliopisto) is the oldest and largest university in Finland. It was founded in 1640 as the "Academy of Turku"; Turku being the former capital of Finland, which was then part of the Swedish realm. After Finland was annexed to the Russian Empire in 1809, the capital was moved to Helsinki. In 1827 the University was transferred to Helsinki, where it opened the following year under the name of the Imperial Alexander University, after the Russian Czar Alexander the Second. It was the only university in Finland until 1919.
