We are an international, young and vibrant university community – 4,450 students and 680 staff members strong – who have chosen to study and work at the University of Lapland.
Founded in 1979, the university today boasts research and teaching in art and design, education, law, social sciences, as well as Northern and Arctic issues and tourism research. These strengths and the people who drive them have created a hub of academic expertise on the Arctic Circle. Drawing on this dynamic, we promote sustainable development, well-being, and equality, reaching out to make a difference locally, regionally, and internationally.
No doubt key to your choosing us are the chances for professional and personal development. The University of Lapland offers both. The professionally ambitious will feel at home here, as ULapland employees' will and motivation to develop in their work are valued and encouraged.
