Helsinki School of Business (HELBUS), is a private business university with innovative teaching methods focusing on quality learning. Lections are taught in English by international lecturers, the majority of whom are PhDs with expertise and experience from their particular field of education.
Studying at HELBUS is optimized by the module structure so that you focus on just one course at a time for 3 weeks before moving on to the next course. Some courses are offered in collaboration with Northampton University in England, and thus have a solid curriculum that is internationally recognized.
Additionally, the syllabus is tailored to the needs of workers in the labour market. The campus is located near the waterfront and just a 10 minute tram ride to downtown Helsinki.
Helsinki has over the years become a vibrant metropolis, and a well-known hub for innovative technologies and modern solutions for urban lifestyle. It can be felt in many areas of the city: Free Wi-Fi in many places, well-functioning public transport and ample opportunity for ride-sharing app opportunities.
The modern and innovative approach, together with the high quality of life combined with the fact that all Finns speak English, has made Helsinki an international hub. Almost 10% of all 70,000 students in Helsinki are international, giving you ample opportunity to learn more about local culture while getting acquainted with a broad international network.
Even if you get to experience the vibrating big city life, doesnt mean that you have to be stuck in traffic, wait in long lines in the supermarkets and jam-packed public transport, as there are just 600,000 residents in Helsinki.
HOAS, is a really good go-to platform in your search for accommodation in helsinki. Students who have received the admission letter from the host university can apply for student accommodation through HOAS 4 months before the move-in date.
Vuokraovi, are one of the most popular housing platforms in Finland, and should certainly be given a shot in the search for housing.
A good plan C is Oikotie. The platform has a wide range of vacant homes, but unfortunately the site is just in Finnish.
In an emergency where you may be late or don't just find the right student accommodation, AirBnB is a well-known alternative. However, we would particularly like to designate Forenom Hostel Helsinki Pitäjänmäki which is a temporary hostel for accommodation in Helsinki, as it is reasonably prices and is close to the campus.
