Student Relocation Information to Finland

🇫🇮 Finland, (FI)

Finland holds a higher standard on education. For foreign students, studying and training in Finland is a perfect way to gain academic and professional experience, as well as personal growth. As a student living in one of the world's most peaceful, sustainable and innovative nations, you are bound to get a lot of the entire experience.

Non-EU students moving to Finland are given the same opportunities as those native to the country or EU- nationals. Finland tries to remain all-encompassing with their higher education programs. Enrolling at a university in the nation is similar to enrolling in a university in the states. Unless you have a scholarship, you will be expected to pay tuition fees as well as meet all the other requirements set by the university you would like to attend. Typically this means you will need the certain documentation and proof including a residence permit.

Student Residence Permit

As a student seeking residency you’ll need the right permit. To gain residency as a student or for study in Finland, you are given as a long-term temporary residence permit that is usually granted for one year at a time. If you come to Finland for a student exchange period exceeding 3 months, or if you have been admitted to a full degree program, then you need to apply for a student residence permit.

To apply for a student residence permit, you need to have a valid passport and an official admission letter from a Finnish university or UAS. You are also required to show enough funding at your disposal (means of support to cover your living costs, including a clarification on tuition fee or scholarship, if applicable), and that you have valid insurance. You can find detailed information on these requirements through the Finnish Immigration Service Migri. Make sure you are fully prepared as a student entering a foreign country for study.

After You Earn Your Residence Permit as a Student- Prepare for the Move

After you have gained your residence permit as a student, start preparing for your move to the nation. You will have a lot to do in little time so it’s best to get started right away. By hiring professionals such as international movers and migration agents, you will have a much easier, less stressful experience.

Find Student Housing

Finland is very accomodating to its students. In fact, there are student housing foundations and other communities that welcome expats there for study. The average monthly rent for a single room in a shared student flat ranges from approximately 160€ to 380€. Take advantage of these housing options if possible. Otherwise, finding housing for rent around the campuses, is relatively easy and inexpensive if you choose to find a place to live without government assistance. You will notice that most rental places around the campuses are one room flats designed for student living.

Get Your Living Expenses in Order

Managing your expenses as a student in a foreign country won’t be easy even with the lesser cost of living in Finland. One of the biggest obstacles for students is the foreign currency system and not having a better understanding of it. Make sure you understand the difference between U.S. and Finnish currency and have all your money converted before you arrive in the country.

With the language barrier and the employers’ desire to hire natives over expats, finding a job may prove difficult. The greatest places to look for jobs hiring include career boards, online and local publications. You can find many jobs where very little experience is necessary, but natives usually get hired first. Your best bet is to search for jobs around the campus of the university you are attending. Try to outshine your competition by being fully prepared with your resume, cover letter, CV and any certifications, degrees and licenses you may have.

The cost of food, transport, entertainment and housing in Finland is relatively cheaper than it is in the United States. Try to come over to the nation with at least enough money to cover 3 months of your stay in Finland as a student. If you don’t plan on working as you continue your education in the country, make sure you have sufficient funds available.

Arranging to Ship Your Things

If you are going to Finland on a scholarship, see what all is included. Some scholarships will pay for moving services, housing, tuition fees, and more. If you plan on shipping some of your belongings over, the relief in expenses will prove helpful. Nevertheless, international moving services are inexpensive and a great deal of assistance. Just make sure you ship over as little as possible, sticking to just the necessities. This will keep your moving service bill lower. You must also make sure that you comply with Finland’s import policies or your stuff may not be allowed to enter the nation.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
