Åland University of Applied Sciences in Mariehamn provides professional higher education studies at two faculties with seven different training programmes. You can study to become a business economist, hotel/restaurant manager, IT engineer or nurse at the university’s Land Faculty. Alternatively, you can choose a profession at sea or study at the university’s Sea Faculty to become an electrical engineer, mechanical engineer or master mariner.
The university collaborates with industry and commerce so as to be able to provide competitive training that combines theory with practical experience. Collaboration often takes the form of development projects. These mean that you can already be building valuable relationships with future work places during your studies.
The university also provides open higher education programmes at the Open University unit where you can study single-subject courses offered by other universities and colleges (Åbo Akademi University, the Swedish School of Economics and Business Administration, Novia University of Applied Sciences, and others) as well as navigation courses and other professional training courses. The Open University also organises lectures and seminars on topical issues.
