Welcome to the home of the HelsinkiUNI International Talent Programme!

HelsinkiUNI International Talent Programme (HITP) is a group mentoring programme aimed at international degree students at the University of Helsinki. It is a brand new initiative which has been developed within the national Talent Boost framework. You can find out more about the background of the programme in the What is HITPsection.

HITP is designed to support international students in building professional networks in Finland and to gain insight into local working life. StudentsĀ  take part in the programme by attending group meetings with a company mentor. These meet-ups happen once a month for a period of seven months. The University Career Services also provide training in career management skills during the programme.


We continue developing HITP despite the Corona virus crisis. We will adapt accordingly and keep you posted. Our aim is to kick off the programme on 3rd December 2020. Latest news and developments will be posted on this site.

We will be contacting companies and organisations during the spring months. HITP partner companies will be announced in August. The application for students will open in September.

Stay tuned!
