“The teaching staff of the programme is very knowledgeable and passionate about their areas of research, and work collaboratively with each other to support students’ research. The warm and friendly atmosphere that the members of the faculty create encourages me to approach them to discuss my work without hesitation.” Yu Zi is a student in the International Master’s Programme in English Studies at the University of Helsinki. The programme combines areas that are often separated elsewhere: English language and linguistics, literature in English and the teaching of English. You will become an expert in the language that is often used as the lingua franca of science, business, culture, and tourism. You can apply to our International Master's Programmes as of 3 December 2018 until 11 January 2019.
