Finland is a Nordic country known for its clean nature - the thousands of lakes, islands and forests dot its landscape making it a nature lover’s paradise.

Finland is highly integrated in the global economy. The largest industries are electronics, machinery, vehicles and other engineered metal products, the forestry industry and chemicals.

The success of Finnish education is built on highly qualified lecturers at all levels of education. Over the past years, the Finnish education system and teacher education has gained international recognition through top placement in the PISA and PIAAC surveys.
