Established 1918, Åbo Akademi University operates currently in Turku and Vaasa. Our leading principles include diversity, openness, courage, sustainability and participation. In our capacity as the only Swedish-speaking university in Finland, we offer a wide range of educational options. We also conduct research in many fields, and our special focus areas are minority research, solutions for health, technologies for a sustainable future, and the sea.
During the course of our first century, we have grown into an internationally acknowledged research university with a unique role as the bridge between the university communities in Finland and the other Nordic countries.
