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.

Professional growth at Lapland UAS

I do not exactly know what made me come to Lapland UAS but today I feel very proud about the decision I made few years back.

It has been a long time since I graduated from Lapland University of Applied Sciences however the memories are still fresh. My name is Deepak KC and I come from Nepal. I started Bachelor Degree Program in Business Information Technology in the year 2006. I do not exactly know what made me come to Lapland UAS but today I feel very proud about the decision I made few years back.


Lapland UAS have provided me with an ample opportunity to master my skills in the field of information technology. The study environment, access to the latest technological innovations, friendly and inspiring instructors and small study groups helped me learn better in an international environment. Lapland UAS always tries to keep balance between the practical and theoretical aspects of computer and business studies. The courses are designed and regularly updated by considering the current technology trends and job market in the field of information technology. The practical training (as compulsory studies) is an opportunity for a student to demonstrate skills one has learned at Lapland UAS. It also opens the door to the professional career.

Being a part of Lapland UAS, both as a student and a lecturer for several years, I know the university very well. The teaching method is comprised of modern pedagogies and usage of different technologies, for example, Moodle learning environment to enhance the learning process. Teachers try their best to provide comprehensive study materials, assignments, team and project works that facilitate students’ learning and help them prepare for a better future. Student learning is continuously assessed and monitored during the course via assignments, exams and project works.

Lapland UAS has made a great impact on my career. It provided me with the best learning environment and proper guidance even after the graduation. It shaped my career and helped me to become the person I am today. Currently, I am holding a full time lecturer position at Kajaani University of Applied Sciences and doctoral position at University of Jyväskylä in the faculty of information technology.

I feel proud of being a part of the Lapland UAS and therefore I strongly recommend Lapland UAS to prospective students. If you prefer to learn in small multi-cultural groups with proper guidance and to have an access to the latest technologies, it can help you prepare for a better future in the field of business and information technology, then Lapland UAS is the right university of applied sciences to begin with.
