The 32nd annual IHD seminar will take place in Helsinki from the 3rd of February to the 10th of February 2019.

During the International Helsinki Days, students get to visit interesting Finnish and international companies. The companies are chosen on behalf of their good reputation and international interest.

Guest lectures on the theme of the seminar will also be held during the IHD week. In addition to the academic experiences, you will get to know traditional Finnish culture up close. Every evening, dinners with different topics will be held. Students also get to experience the beautiful nature of Finland as they spend an evening at a traditional Finnish cottage.

Last but not least, students get to spend quality time with their hosts. This is a great opportunity for you to make new friends in Finland. Every year International Helsinki Days seminar has created long-lasting friendships and we count on doing it again this year.

Accommodation, dinners and costs for the seminars during the week will be covered by IHD. Other expenses, such as plane tickets to Helsinki and transportation in Helsinki, when needed, are not covered. The hosts will be ready to offer you accommodation from Sunday the 3rd of February to Sunday the 10th of February.

Comments from previous years

International Helsinki Days is a week that will completely change your life!! How can I apply again?!
This week was like a dream for me. Even now, I still cannot believe what have happened here in Helsinki. In one word, AWESOME!!!
Anything now might not do any justice to the time we had together. What Iā€™d leave you with is this: you ask me 10-20 years down the line, I bet I could recall most of the week.
