The 30th IHD seminar will take place in Helsinki from the 5th to the 12th of February 2017.

During the International Helsinki Days, students get to visit interesting Finnish and international companies. The companies are chosen on behalf of their good reputation and international interest.

Guest lectures on the subject will also be held during the IHD week. In addition to the academic experiences, you will get to know traditional Finnish culture up close. Every evening, dinners with different topics will be held. Students get to experience the beautiful nature of Finland as they spend an evening at a cottage in the traditional Finnish way.

Last but not least, students get to spend some quality time with their hosts. This is a great opportunity for you to make new friends in Finland. Every year International Helsinki Days has created long-lasting friendships and we count on doing it again this year.

The IHD will cover the accommodation, dinners and the costs for the seminars during the week. Other expenses such as plane tickets and transportation in Helsinki, when needed, are not covered. The hosts will be ready to offer you accommodation from Sunday the 5th to Sunday the 12th of February.

Comments from previous years

International Helsinki Days is a week that will completely change your life!! How can I apply again?!

This week was like a dream for me. Even now, I still cannot believe what have happened here in Helsinki. In one word, AWESOME!!!

Anything now might not do any justice to the time we had together. What I'd leave you with is this: you ask me 10-20 years down the line, I bet I could recall most of the week.
