Students working

A student's perspective What is it like to study at the University of Vaasa?

Our student ambassadors are here to share their experiences of their studies, the university itself and student life in Vaasa.

Education agents

The University of Vaasa works with a carefully selected group of education partners (agents) who help applicants. It's your choice whether to use their help.

Your admission depends only on your application. We evaluate all applicants based on the same criteria, whether you apply directly or through an agent. The application periods are also the same for all applicants. To apply, all applicants use the Studyinfo portal, and there's currently no application fee.

If you'd like agent support, you can find a list of our approved education agents below. They're paid by the university for helping applicants.

Code of Conduct for education agents by Finnish higher education institutions

Finnish higher education institutions have collectively developed an Agent Code of Conduct, an ethical guideline, aiming to establish minimum expected operating standards for education agents and other partners involved in international student recruitment. The purpose of the guidelines is to ensure responsible and professional conduct of education agents in all interactions with potential students, their parents, education providers, and other stakeholders. The Agent Code of Conduct has been approved by Unifi, the Rectors’ Conference of Finnish Universities.
