Description Laurea University of Applied Sciences

Laurea University of Applied Sciences (Laurea-ammattikorkeakoulu, LAUREA) was founded in 1992 and is one of the largest state universities of applied sciences, which was granted an experimental license in Finland. In 1997-1998 This license has been expanded to cover nearly 20 educational institutions in the Uusimaa region. At that time, the name of the university was changed to Espoo-Vantaa University of Applied Sciences, reflecting the cities that were its main owners. The government of Finland put the activities of the educational institution on a permanent basis in 2000, and in 2001 the name Laurea University of Applied Sciences was adopted.
