Åbo Akademi was a private institution until 1981, when it was turned into a public institution. Åbo Akademi was founded by private donations in 1918 as the third university in Finland, both to let Turku again become a university town and because it was felt that the Swedish language was threatened at the University of Helsinki. The Finnish University of Turku was founded in 1920, also by private donations and for similar reasons.
The institute offers the best knowledge and expertise in the major areas of the Arts, Psychology and Theology, Education and Welfare Studies, Social Sciences, Business and Economics, Science and Engineering. A significant minority of the students are Finnish-speaking. While Turku in itself is mostly Finnish, the university provides a strong Swedish environment. Most of the students, regardless of original language, will be functionally bilingual when finishing their studies. The university has a policy that non-Swedish speaking applicants from the Nordic countries are required to participate in a Swedish language test, in order to prove their ability to successfully study in Swedish. Applicants from non-Nordic countries can, however, choose between Swedish or English language tests. Many internationally reputed scholars and experts found a place in this institution working with dedication and academic commitment.
The strength of the institute lies in its ability to produce the true, genuine and unique research works where its students and staff pursue research and academics with passion and at most dedication.
