Metropolia has ten international degree programmes in which the language of instruction is English. Over 300 international degree students who represent more than 50 different nationalities study at Metropolia every year. In addition to the international degree students, there are almost 160 exchange students from partner institutions of higher education from all over the world every year.

Metropolia takes good care of its exchange students. A designated peer tutor assists the student with practical matters (such as registration, bank account etc.), and familiarises the student with studies and student life upon arrival in Finland. Their international office staff and supervising teachers will help students to organise their studies. The student will find accommodation through the Foundation for Student Housing in the Helsinki Region (HOAS). There the student becomes acquainted with other students. Metropolia Student Union, METKA, organises lots of activities and meetings during the academic year.
