Lapland UAS offers many fields of study, and studying and teaching make good use of the learning environments offered by nature in the North. Northernness is for us an opportunity to specialise, also internationally. Our primary mission is to support and steer Lapland’s development and ensure the wellness of the region’s people. We take into consideration the demands of the Lappish lifestyle and the special needs of business activity in the North in both our education and our research and development activities.
Currently the university is with total 530 staff members, 270 academic staff members and 5500 students.
