Study in Finland – but not in Finnish

The Finnish Centre for International Mobility, CIMO, has carried a large-scale survey of degree programmes that are taught in languages other than Finnish in the country’s higher education institutions. The report maps the extent and nature of this phenomenon of internationaliation in Finnish higher education. It highlights that “foreign language” equals “English” for all 275 degree programmes identified, confirming the findings of ACA’s European survey of English-taught programmes in the past year (see ACA Newsletter – Education Europe, February 2008). Furthermore, the survey shows that this type of provision is targeted at both national and international students. The study also examines foreign-medium tuition in the context of the Finnish labour market and of the recruitment services for international students. The report is available for download on the CIMO website. CIMO
