We currently offer 9 different international master programmes in a number of different fields. Our university is known for good teacher-student relations, small groups and good possibilities to get individual support within the studies.

Research

Åbo Akademi University’s activities are characterized by our responsibilities related to Swedish-speaking Finland and by our international atmosphere. We are a familiar minority university with great ambitions regarding education and research, and we have set high standards for boundary-crossing (co-)operation. Old academic traditions and modern innovations exist side by side, which lends our university its unique atmosphere. Join us and work for a better world!

The Career Services offer personal career counseling where we focus on identifying your skills and abilities and can give suggestions on how to efficiently look for suitable positions. You can also choose to make a person profile analysis (SLG Thomas) in combination with the counseling.

Services

Housing services

Students apply for housing themselves. Remember to start applying for housing in time! When applying for housing you should read your e-mail daily in order to be able to confirm the accommodation offer in time. If you fail to confirm the accommodation offer in time, your housing offer will be cancelled. None of these housing options are run by the university – we are only affiliated with them.

Which campus you study at will depend on your chosen programme, but both campuses are recognised equally on an international level for their contributions to research, as well as their overall excellence in the world of academia.
