Dear neighbours in Russia, welcome to study at UH!

In 2011 UH visited student fairs in St. Petersburg. Here we had some time to admire the Winter Palace after rain.

University of Helsinki (UH) is once again visiting Russia to meet local students. We visit our favourite city St. Petersburg and student fairs there every year. Why? Because the University of Helsinki wants to actively recruit bright Russian students to our international programmes. Already now Russians are one of the largest groups among international students at UH.

Come and meet UH and other Finnish universities during the Study in Europe Day in St. Petersburg.

  • Time: Saturday 22 September, 2012
  • Place: Finnish Consulate, Preobrazhenskaja pl. 4, 191028 St. Petersburg

Did you know that the University of Helsinki is consistently ranked in the top 100 out of world’s 15 000 universities? Here some examples:

The reason which makes international students choose the University of Helsinki is the university’s good reputation and the high level of research and teaching. Helsinki is also a great place to be and our international students say it is a very safe place to live in. Nowadays the two cities, Helsinki and St. Petersburg, are closer than ever before. It is barely a four hour train-ride away (5 times per day), a flight takes only an hour and you can take a cheap minibus or an overnight ferry, too.

The application period for Master’s Degree Programmes opens 19 November, 2012 and closes 31 January, 2013. If you are planning to apply, please pay attention to the application documents. Russian applicants must submit the official government-granted degree certificate and transcript (you should get this automatically from your home university) and you must have your degree certificate and transcript verified by apostille. For more information see the How to Apply website.

See you at the Consulate!
