Program Description:

University of Helsinki

HELAlthough the University of Helsinki or Helsingin Yliopisto, has been situated in the Finnish capital, Helsinki, since 1829, it was in fact established in the city of Turku on the southwest coast of Finland in 1640 as the Royal Academy of Turku, at that time part of the Swedish Empire under the Swedish ruler, the infamous Queen Christina.

As the oldest and largest university in Finland with the broadest breadth of disciplines there are approximately 36,500 students currently enrolled at the University between the 11 faculties and 11 research institutes that form the University.

The campus based in the historical city centre of Helsinki has been the hub of the University's existence since it was relocated from Turku in the early 1800s. The campus has a central location and reflects the architectural style of this part of the city.
