About
The University of Helsinki (UH) is Finland’s largest and oldest university with more than 36,500 students enrolled across 11 faculties. UH was established in 1640 at Turku on Finland’s south-west coast but moved to Helsinki in 1829 after Turku was levelled in a fire. The University is considered bi-lingual (Finnish and Swedish) but English is the defacto third language. UH is a founding member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU) that includes institutions like Oxford and Cambridge.
 
Academic Highlights

UH is considered excellent for law, IT, science, pharmacy and the arts and is particularly renowned for its strength in scientific research and the teaching derived from that. It consistently ranks in the world’s top 100 universities. To get an idea of Helsinki's academic prowess, please see the following video.
 
Location
All four campuses of UH are located in Helsinki with the main, and original campus, being in the city centre with facilities that include the botanic gardens, museums and Finland’s best libraries.
