There are two kinds of higher education institutions in Finland:

The mission of universities is to conduct scientific research and provide instruction and postgraduate education based on it. UAS train professionals in response to labour market needs and conduct research and development which supports instruction and promotes regional development in particular.

Both UAS and universities offer bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes, with some differences in admission criteria.

Higher education institutions also offer open studies and continuing education.
