About Lahti University of Applied Sciences

Lahti University of Applied Sciences (Lahti UAS) is a multi-disciplinary higher education institution which was founded in 1992. Lahti UAS is located in Lahti, a great location close to the capital city of Helsinki, in the middle of Southern Finland, with easy access to St. Petersburg. The city is known for its environmental expertise and for being an internationally renowned design centre. Lahti UAS offers modern facilities and delivers a high quality, innovative teaching program to over 5,000 students.


Course modules for ANU students are available in:

  • Fashion Design – some courses may be appropriate for ANU students majoring in Textiles or Textiles Design
  • Furniture Design
  • Jewellery Design
  • Photography


30 ECTS = 24 ANU units



Accommodation links

Lahti UAS cooperates with local housing organisations. Reserved rooms for exchange students are available in two places – Lahden Talot and Hoitajankatu. Please see 'Accommodation links'.



The costs of studying overseas vary greatly depending on your lifestyle and where you go. Major costs are your return airfare, accommodation and living expenses, which vary from country to country. Living and travel costs range from as little as $2000 in total for short-term international study programs, up to $2000 per month – more in some high-cost countries – for full semester or year programs. Some partner universities also require you to pay for health insurance, orientation or extra-curricular activities, so be aware that extra costs like these might pop up.

Indicative travel and living costs can be found on websites such as:

STA Travel

For all ANU endorsed programs you continue to pay your fees to ANU, but you are exempt from paying tuition fees to the institution overseas. Often long-term overseas study will not cost much more than studying in Australia and it will give you an experience of a lifetime.




It’s possible to hold more than one scholarship, bursary or grant at a time, so checking out all of the funding opportunities available to you is a good idea.

You may also be able to source some funding through our partner universities – they provide scholarships and grants to encourage you to choose them as your destination.

School of Art & Design Travelling Grants

The School of Art & Design has established four travelling grants to assist outbound students with the cost of international exchange. These scholarships range in value from $2,500 to $4,000 and are awarded once each year.

These scholarships do not require a separate application. Students accepted to go on a School of Art & Design exchange will automatically be considered for a School of Art & Design travelling grant based on all aspects of their student exchange application.


OS-HELP is a Government loan scheme to assist eligible Australian students enrolled in a Commonwealth supported place, who wish to undertake an overseas experience as part of their degree.



Finnish and English.

All degrees at Lahti UAS Institute of Design and Fine Arts are provided in Finnish. However, many individual courses are taught in English.
