Finland’s strengths in the field of education are a competitive education system and an excellent reputation worldwide. At Lahti UAS we are proud of our achievements and determined to provide our students with high quality education and teaching, qualities for which Finland as a country is famous. We have highly qualified staff, modern learning facilities, innovative teaching methods and a desire to develop our curriculum and support the learning of our students from Finland and overseas.
We are an innovative and internationally respected actor in the field of education. In our programmes and courses, we work together closely with local businesses and partners to equip our students with the skills needed in the demanding working life after their graduation. By implementing integrated pedagogy as well as research, development and innovation activities in our teaching we aim at producing new and authentic learning situations and innovative pedagogical solutions.
In addition, our strategic focus areas; welfare service development, environment and design, are closely linked to the regional strategy and priorities. Known for its cleantech expertise, health care services and modern design, the Lahti region has a vast amount of know-how and experience to offer to our students and partner organisations.
Finally, Lahti UAS is a member of the FUAS alliance, which is the largest Federation of Universities of Applied Sciences in Finland. Through this cooperation with HAMK and Laurea Universities of Applied Sciences our students can benefit from a wider range of excellent opportunities.
