University of Helsinki’s Educational Sciences Ranks 23rd in the World


We are proud to announce that our shareholder and partner, University of Helsinki, has been ranked 23rd in the world for Educational Sciences in the 2020 QS World University rankings. This is the third consecutive year it has moved up in the rankings, and the Educational Sciences Faculty is now ranked #5 in Europe and #1 in the Nordic countries.
