Strong growth con­tin­ues: The Uni­versity of Helsinki re­ceived 3,900 ap­plic­a­tions for its in­ter­na­tional mas­ter’s pro­grammes


In recent years, the University of Helsinki as one of Agrinatura’ s Scandinavian members has invested in increasing the number of international students. Degree programmes and studies at the University of Helsinki are promoted, for example, through targeted digital marketing.

Saarenheimo is openly enthusiastic about the increasing number of students interested in the programmes. In addition to the number of applications, their quality is of utmost importance.

“As we aim to admit the best possible students to our degree programmes, we are continuously looking for ways to enhance the quality of applications,” Saarenheimo notes.


The largest number of applications, 317, was submitted to the Master’s Programme in Environmental Change and Global Sustainability. In second place with 278 applications was the Master’s Programme in Data Science. The third place went to the Master’s Programme in Global Politics and Communication, which received 269 applications.

Decisions on admissions and grants will be made at the turn of March and April, after which the admitted applicants will announce whether they accept the student place offered to them. Their studies will begin in autumn 2019.
