Tertiary education


Finland - Introduction

country: Finland

Finnish tertiary education has two parallel sectors: universities and polytechnics or AMK institutions, (Finnish: ammattikorkeakoulu, Swedish: yrkeshögskola) Universities concentrate on academic and scientific research and education whereas polytechnics are more oriented to working life and they base their functions on the high standards it demands. The education and training provided by the polytechnics respond to labour market needs. Their task is also to conduct R&D which supports instruction and promotes regional development.
