Centria has its feet firmly on the ground of three Ostrobothnian regions - Kokkola, Pietarsaari, and Ylivieska campuses. We offer several great fields of study, skills, and achievements, of which students, personnel, and business life in the region can be proud of. As a higher education institution, Centria is not like everyone else, but a bold traveler of its own path. We believe in courage and the strong role of students in the university's affairs, also in decision-making. We already do things as others will do in the future: Without discrimination and with a good spirit. If Centria has not left a heart-shaped mark on your soul yet, just wait.Learn more!

It's not about "failure - passing" in Centria. The flexibility is just - wow. In terms of understanding students in the academical way, and their social life as well.
Studies are divided in two sections; theory and work placement. The work placement I enjoyed the most, because the theory you learn in the class - you can apply it in the work placement. Especially for me - when I do those things I learn better.

In the end of the day, whatever you study - whatever you are, there's the company. How and why does it function? Why do things work that way? That's the main reason I chose to study.
I really love the concept of BIT, a mix of IT with business. I will choose to have my own business or I'll go back to my home country to run the family business.
