The classified ad service oikotie.fi improves its education section by adding information on studies abroad. In co-operation with masterstudies.com from Norway, Oikotie will include ads on more than 13.500 places to study for MA, MSc, MBA, or PhD. Top universities from more than 57 countries all over the world are represented.
Oikotie.fi provides the largest supply in Finland for people looking for graduate or postgraduate studies. The service can meet even the most demanding needs.
"Work keeps getting more challenging; international players come to Finland and Finnish companies and the public sector go international. There are more and more people wishing to develop their skills abroad. For the hungry young or the experienced professionals, it is possible to find things abroad one simply cannot find in Finland", says Jukka Haapalainen from Oikotie.
Oikotie also covers a wide range of courses and degrees in Finland, language courses, vocational qualifications, courses for the adults.
"We wish to support people's decisions by providing extensive information on where to study, both in Finland and abroad. Our new extended supply improves the chances to make a choice, and makes comparison easier, says Haapalainen.
According to a survey of oikotie.fi made in January, the users are happy with the searches. Also, leaving an ad was considered easy. 80% of the respondents gave the service at least grade 8 (10 to be the best in a scale from 4 to 10).
