Today, in total over 20,000 foreigners are completing their degrees in Finland’s 14 universities and 23 universities of applied sciences. On what grounds do foreign students choose a Finnish higher education institution? What kinds of experiences do they have of studying in Finland?

The International Student Barometer (ISB) is a survey aimed at international exchange and degree students studying in different countries carried out by the British iGraduate. The present ISB survey, which was carried out in autumn 2017, had 15 Finnish higher education institutions take part. The Finnish National Agency for Education EDUFI supported the participation to receive results from as many higher education institutions as possible.
