"When I discovered how high the ranking of the University of Helsinki was, I decided to apply"
One of the University of Helsinki’s international student ambassadors, Rupsha Bagchi, decided on Finland when she was looking for somewhere in Europe to continue her studies after her Bachelor's degree. “My friend was studying at Aalto University and sang the country’s praises. I looked into universities, and when I discovered how high the ranking of the University of Helsinki was, I decided to apply. It was of course a plus that the high-quality studies were also free of charge.”
Bagchi was so happy with her choice that last year, she decided to become an international student ambassador. The ambassadors market the University to international students and help them with applications as well as settling in.
“The student ambassador system has been around for several years, but I'm the first Indian to participate. I’m proud to represent the University of Helsinki and enjoy being able to help others and meet new people. I believe that both the international students and the University benefit from this."

This is Finland: "(The Finns) know how to make the most of the winter months. The following Winter Top 8 will give you a glimpse of what keeps Finns going during the coldest months of the year." (--)
"What a fantastic feeling to wake up one morning in the late autumn and look out of the window to see that the first snow has fallen! Children waste no time rushing outside to make their first snowmen and find the nearest sledding hill, while adults dig out their winter sports equipment.
Cross-country skiing is a national pastime and nearly all municipalities maintain ski tracks that are lit at night. The yearly Finlandia skiing marathon attracts more than 5,000 participants for its 60-kilometre course. Also, schools close for a one-week ski holiday in February or March and many parents take time off then so that families can enjoy outdoor winter pursuits together.
Other key sports are the various branches of alpine skiing, snowboarding and freestyle skiing."
