Savonlinna Summer University

Savonlinna Summer University gives an opportunity for both personal and professional development. Savonlinna Summer University operates in close partnership and permanent collaboration with Finnish universities, Universities of Applied Sciences and other institutions of learning.

Courses are open to everyone regardless of age or prior education. However, it is essential to notice that Summer University offers short-term courses, not degree programmes. The language of instruction is mainly Finnish, but some courses are taught in English. Savonlinna Summer University offers music education in English during summer.

Savonlinna Summer University plans a curriculum on a yearly basis in cooperation with Finnish universities. Interdisciplinary programmes are offered in the fields of art, music, literature, education, law, environmental sciences, health care and social sciences. In addition, Savonlinna Summer University has a wide range of courses on current topics.

In addition to student fees, Summer Universities receive their funding from the state and municipalities. Summer Universities take part in educational and cultural projects that aim for regional and European development. Therefore, their role as educators is important.
