Arcada joins UAS Pathway Studies to Finland programme

Published: 11.04.2022 / Education

What happens when 18 Finnish universities of applied sciences (UAS) put their heads together and start thinking of how to bring more talented students to Finland? The UAS Path offers a unique, co-operatively carried out programme, where students wishing to study in Finland can first taste the Finnish study experience from their home country, online, and move to Finland to complete the degree after that.

After completing 40–60 ECTS from the study offering of the UAS Path, the students will apply to selected Finnish universities of applied sciences through a separate application system. The programme is available in the fields of International Business (IB) and ICT. Arcada takes part in the IB pathway. More information about our programme in International Business.

From the student’s point of view, the UAS Path offers many benefits. The pathway studies are fully accredited as part of your degree and UASs have reserved study places exclusively available for successful graduates from the UAS Pathway Studies. You also do not have to move to Finland right away, but you can study the first year online from your home country and see if the study field is right for you. This saves you money and gives you more time to apply for a residence permit and to plan your move to Finland.

The courses are taught by experienced Finnish teachers from different universities of applied sciences. Start building your future with the best and join the UAS Path.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of mother and child health guidance in Finland. The work has changed over the years, but it is still just as important for families and children, says Arcada's Public Health Nursing alumna Jannika Kuhlefelt and student Julina Fagerlund. They work at what was once Finland's first maternity and child health clinic in Kallio.
