University of Lapland

Originally established in 1979 to provide higher education opportunities for those living in the far reaches of northern Finland, the university has now become an important educational institution for the entire country. The University of Lapland has turned out every fourth lawyer, every third university-educated expert in art and design, close to ten percent of the social scientists, and many talented educational professionals here in Finland.
Our graduates occupy numerous positions of responsibility in society and business throughout Finland and the world – this is something we take great pride in.
