Laine, Tytti-Maaria
International Degree Students and Graduates. A Follow-up Study on Employment and Social Integration into Turku
Siirtolaisuusinstituutin julkaisuja 13
Turku 2017, 44 pp.


There were around 1,600 international students in Turku in 2016. Most of them would like to stay in Finland after their graduation. However, finding a job is challenging for all graduates but especially so for international students.

This book presents results of a survey conducted with international students. They were asked how much they worked in Turku during studies, and how successful they were in gaining employment in Turku. They responded also to questions about their social ties, language skills and a general feeling of being at home.

This survey International Degree Students and Graduates: A Follow-up Study on Employment and Social Integration into Turku was a follow-up study based on a former inquiry International Degree Students: A survey of experiences of study, work and life in Turku conducted a year earlier and published by Migration Institute of Finland in 2016.

Both studies were part of the International talents as resource for expanding companies (PATH) project which aims to help international students in Higher Education Institutions in the Turku area to stay and act as a productive part of the local economic life after graduation.
