Finnish universities UNIFI expresses support for Ukraine and the Ukrainian university students and staff. We condemn Russia’s military action in Ukraine.

Our universities are international and multicultural communities. Universities support their students and staff and support in the crisis. Each university is informing their own students and staff.

Finnish universities have research and education co-operation as well as student exchange activities with Ukrainian universities. Finnish universities, together with Scholars at Risk (SAR) Finland, are investigating the possibilities for hosting Ukrainian students and researchers to the Finnish universities. Considering the students and staff from the Finnish universities, there are currently no students or staff in Ukraine to our knowledge.
