Quality at Arcada
Arcada is a multidisciplinary university of applied sciences that acts as a driving force in Swedish-language education in Helsinki. We fulfil our mission by offering degree programmes that support individuals' lifelong career development and through socially relevant research and development activities.
In practice, this translates into:
- We offer relevant, high-quality and timely professional education and supervision
- Our research, development and innovation (RDI) activities add value to society and lead to sustainable development.
- We have a strong international profile and an explicit set of values
- A general educational ideal characterises all activities.
Arcada's education and RDI activities produce competent and sought-after experts for the needs of society, work and culture.
We put student learning at the centre and emphasise sustainable development in our education. This includes support for student well-being and career development. Customised study pathways and clear processes for validation promote diverse and individual competence building.
