This autumn the University of Helsinki is giving about 50 start-up grants to our international degree students. The International Student Grant, or ISG as we say, is meant for students who are accepted to study in one of the chosen International Master’s Degree Programmes. The amount of each grant will be 1000-1500 euro (paid once) and the application time is open until August 31st 2016 15:00 o´clock (Finnish time GMT +2).
If you are an international degree student moving to Finland from abroad and have already been accepted to the University of Helsinki, you can apply for the grant. You are eligible to apply as soon as you have accepted your placement and registered for studies at the University of Helsinki.
The career skills course can help students decide what they want to be when they grow up.
Milica Maksimovic stands at one of the crossroads of her life. This January, she will defend her doctoral dissertation on neuroscience, but after that her future is open. To navigate the jungle of different options, Maksimovic took the Career Services course for English-speaking doctoral students, first one course for her own field and then another one for a multidisciplinary audience.
