The aggregated digital solution makes the application process more fluid for students, and increases the chances that young people will go on to higher education. The solution was developed by the Finnish National Agency for Education in partnership with Knowit, which is also in charge of maintaining the site.

“During the development phase, we integrated a number of application services that were previously independent of one another. This simplifies the application procedure for students and substantially reduces maintenance costs”

Laila Puranen, Application Manager at the Finnish National Agency for Education.

Using Opintopolku.fi, applicants will also be able to apply for financial aid from the Social Insurance Institution of Finland during the same process, thus further streamlining the application process.

Saku Haarala at Knowit Finland is Client Manager for Finnish National Agency for Education.

“In addition to improving the application procedure, we foresee a major positive impact on the environment by reducing traditional post and paper used for application documents and admission decisions”
