I think that when I will be applying for a job, the studies in a foreign country and degree from a university abroad will be a great competitive advantage.

The best things in Lapland UAS and Tornio city are the friendly and international environment with a mixture of many cultures. It is nice to meet new people from many countries. I feel comfortable and happy here in Tornio. I like to be on my own and have made many good friends from different countries.

The Business Information Technology study program is well designed and interesting, and I can learn from expert teachers here. I especially like the practical, up-to-date approach and course materials, as well as the necessity of teamwork and interaction with other students.

I chose to come to study in Finland in Lapland UAS because I had personal interests and prior studies experiences in Information Technology which I wanted to raise to an international level. Lapland UAS was attractive because of the extreme conditions caused by its location. I was also interested in Scandinavian culture and the way of life. Finland is a wonderful place, quite extreme though, but that is the reason why it is so unique.

If you are interested in IT or business field, BIT is a great opportunity for you. The study program allows you to first develop the necessary basic IT skills and later specialize in IT or business field, according to your preference. There is a huge need for experts in both fields. If you are not sure about your English language skills, don’t worry! We share the same worries and the insecurity will disappear after a couple of weeks.

In Lapland UAS I have experienced efficient management of matters whether it was regarding the application process, practical training or the thesis process. Teachers and staff members are friendly and professional. Student life in Tornio is lively and several organized events bring us foreign students together. The university also offers a lot of possibilities to travel even further abroad for an exchange semester for study or practical training.

I think that when I will be applying for a job, the studies in a foreign country and degree from a university abroad will be a great competitive advantage.
