Course recommendations
The Scandinavian Studies program is a great way to take courses in English and to meet other international students. If you want to meet Finnish students and see how the Finnish university system really works, try to take classes in the larger university as well.

Sometimes, the professors went a little overboard with the papers, but the subjects were fair for the most part, and the papers doable.

Course recommendations
It is somewhat difficult to arrange to take courses in English outside of the International program courses, but keep trying if you really want to take them.

There are very few tests or exams for the international-student courses. There is usually a 2-5 page paper for each course, but they are nothing big. Very little work--I loved it!

to try more in getting students really interested in what is taught. The courses itself are interesting, but the teaching style made your interest and excitement vanish; field excursions were really great!!!

Course recommendations
There are a lot of courses at low/middle level, but a lack of advanced ones. If you've already studied 3 or 4 years, you could have difficulties to find convenient courses. Otherwise, everything is ok.

The courses were not too bad, but did not add to my current knowledge. I was too far ahead already and the courses were actually of very little use to me.
