Now that we have established our presence in Finland, Study Advisory is destined to conquer the rest of the world and gain more global impact!
Study Advisory’s origins are in small, yet mighty Finland, a country with the population of only 5,5 million people. Small we might be, but within this population the people have a lot of ‘sisu’ and when it comes to our study squad … oh boy, you can’t even imagine how much sisu there is! In case you’ve ever wondered what exactly is this ‘sisu’, it is a Finnish word that cannot be translated but in short it illustrates the strong mentality and attitude of Finnish people.
We are aiming high: we want to be global and to change the world – or even the universe as soon as the man reaches Mars. Our team is vibrant and ready to move wherever we are needed, even to another planet if that is required!
Going global is not startling for us, because we are already very international within our team! We have staff members from three continents, working in three cities in two continents.
Half of our team is located in Hong Kong, with local and Finnish fellows. In Tampere, Finland, we have a team consisting of our American consolidation from Texas, as well as Finns living in Finland and Scotland. This is not all, but we have also reached to Ireland with one of our team members working from there.
Providing information about higher education globally and improving the possibilities for everyone to study abroad for a full degree or just as an exchange, are only some of our goals.
We are much more: we are here to help everyone and already now we have gained influence over many countries in Europe and Asia. However, we are always looking over the horizon in order to explore something new and improve our services, as well as make constantly new connections. Eeva and Melissa from our team in Tampere are traveling to Germany and London to meet with our future partner universities. And further on this road the next stop is overseas when we participate in the NAFSA (Association of International Educators) conference in Denver, Colorado.
