The Finnish education system has an excellent reputation globally. Strong roots from kindergarten to universities and a focus on life-long learning have helped it develop into an innovation leader. Encompassing all voices through equity and access is one of the hallmarks of Finland’s educational success, where internationalisation of higher education is a key part of the policy landscape. Join us for the very first session of the conference week to explore this exciting higher education space.
