Bachelor Degrees for International students
Bachelor Degree studies provide the student with a broad general knowledge and skills with relevant theoretical background for working as an expert. The curriculum includes basic and professional studies, elective studies, a practical training period, and a Bachelor’s thesis.
A Bachelor’s degree completed at a university of applied sciences consists of 210 or 240 credits (3 to 4 years of full-time study) depending on the study field. Bachelor’s degrees completed at universities of applied sciences are equal to other Finnish Bachelor’s degrees and give the same qualifications as them.

What are full-time studies?
In full-time studies, teaching and guidance are primarily conducted on campus during weekdays and daytime hours. The curriculum also includes independent study, possibly some online courses with more flexible scheduling, as well as internships and thesis work as outlined in the curriculum.
Why come to study in Vaasa?
Our university is located in the heart of Vaasa, which has more energy technology related companies than any other city in the Nordic countries. In our region, more than 160 companies work in the field of energy technology, and about 25 % of the employees of the Finnish energy sector work here. The overall turnover of these companies is about 5 billion euros annually, and therefore it is well justified to say that Vaasa keeps the wheels of Finland’s economy rolling!

A smooth-running daily life, well-being and happiness arise from good employment, a high level of education, well-functioning services, rich cultural offerings, a wide variety of recreational opportunities.
