University of Eastern Finland

The University of Eastern Finland (UEF) is one of the largest universities in Finland, and home to approximately 15,000 students and 2,800 members of staff. Our campuses are located in Joensuu, Kuopio and Savonlinna.

UEF is a multidisciplinary university, which offers teaching in more than 100 major subjects. We have four faculties: the Philosophical Faculty, the Faculty of Science and Forestry, the Faculty of Health Sciences, and the Faculty of Social Sciences and Business Studies.

Our activities underscore multidisciplinarity. Our key interdisciplinary research areas are built around four global challenges. These challenges are Ageing, lifestyles and health; Learning in a digitised society; Cultural encounters, mobilities and borders; and Environmental change and sufficiency of natural resources.

In addition to a high standard of teaching, we offer our students a modern study environment, which is under constant development. Student well-being is among our primary concerns.
