This year we are celebrating the 14th anniversary of the Helsinki Summer School with 17 fully credited courses. The courses cover a wide range of academic fields and are organized by three of the world’s top universities. During the three week period, our courses offer you high standard university studies and an innovative learning experience, together with international student colleagues from 60 different countries.
