“I really enjoyed learning in a relaxed atmosphere, meeting other people from many countries doing different things and getting to know the University before the hustle and bustle of term time as an international degree student began.“

The majority of professional architects in Finland work in architecture firms or as private entrepreneurs, but also the public sector is a significant employer. Traditionally architects in Finland have mainly worked in architectural design. The scope of the profession has since expanded considerably to also include, for example, environmental issues, real estate management, education and research, and the culture sector. The focus of design tasks has shifted from new construction to the multiple challenges of renovation. More and more architects are working as urban planners, as experts employed by companies, the government, institutions and organisations, or in education and research. The Master’s Degree Programme in Architecture prepares future architects to pursue a wide range of career opportunities.
