Remember - international talents are always wanted! As a foreign student deciding to study abroad and challenging yourself, surely you are one of them. The thing is to believe in your skills and to use opportunities given to you during your educational period. You have the right to feel lost in a new culture and environment, as accommodating into the Finnish life style is not easy for foreigners. Many times we have heard from foreign students that Finns cannot truly understand the amount of challenge foreigners are facing when living in Finland.
