The new Lapland University of Applied Sciences will have four fields of expertise:

Wellness services, with administrative headquarters in Rovaniemi
Business and culture, with administrative headquarters in Tornio
Travel and tourism, with administrative headquarters in Rovaniemi
Industry and natural resources, with administrative headquarters in Kemi

Each field of expertise includes several educational and research areas with which we carry out our mission to provide vocational oriented university education and to conduct research, development and innovation work that especially serves Lapland.

To build the joint Lapland University of Applied Sciences, we have organised ourselves into project organisations. A total of 300 employees will take part in the construction work, along with a large group of students, partners and representatives of stakeholders.
