It’s Never Too Late to Study!

Studying in Oulu Business School has brightened my plans for the future, as I now have more appreciation for my study fields and I know I have a lot more to learn, which I am very eager to do. I would love to see more people experience same shift in their life goals and open their eyes to the amount of opportunities there are.

I enjoy being engaged in different things: studies, sports, social activities, which is why Finnish education system is very convenient and suitable to me – I can manage my own time and pace and prioritize between practices, social events, trips and studies.

I also like Oulu as a city, as it offers a great variety of things to try and diverse population of people with different backgrounds and interests to meet. It has definitely affected some of my lifestyle habits in a good way.

One important thing I have realized while studying in University of Oulu is it is never too late to study and there are always opportunities to learn new things, which is a great way to find what you truly enjoy doing. I hope I will eventually manage to learn Finnish!
