Finland to accept 150,000 international students
Finnish Ambassador to Malaysia Petri Puhakka said students could study in various fields conducted in English including forestry, information and communication technology (ICT), green technology, teaching as well medicine.
“The remarkably lower cost of living in Finland compared to the United Kingdom and United States and that our universities topped global rankings make Finnish institutions an attractive alternative for international students,” he told Bernama at the launch of Edunation Finland.
Currently, the country is in talks with some local universities including Universiti Sains Malaysia and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia on possible collaboration to enhance the education sector.
Finland has a total of 39 universities with 25 of them in applied sciences. ■
