The Finnish Institute in Japan promotes higher education cooperation between Finland and Japan. The Institute is contributing to the export of Finnish education in Japan, bringing together Japanese and Finnish higher education institutions, and implementing projects and events in cooperation with universities and polytechnics.
For example, at the European Higher Education Fair in Japan, and at the Japan Association for Student Services student fair, the institute provides information on the Finnish educational offering to Japanese students. The Institute has organised for example the East Asia regional meeting for the Finnish language and culture teachers including university visits, and the Sino-Finnish-Japanese University Center’s Shenyang Workshop for the Asian and Finnish architect students, which was initiated by the Institute.
The Finnish Institute in Japan also serves as a consultant for Japanese higher education and brings together potential partners.
