From early childhood education to university

The Kuopio region has many opportunities for education and studies for young people and adults. On a Finnish scale, the Savilahti campus with its three degrees of education is truly a unique learning environment. The University of Eastern Finland, Savonia University of Applied Sciences, and Savo Vocational College (Sakky) have created a mutually supportive community for their approximately 18,500 students. All in all, there are ca. 25,000 students in Kuopio. 

Kuopio also has 20 upper secondary schools, a summer university, the Emergency Services College and Kuopio Conservatory, as well as Kuopio Sports academy that offers students an opportunity to combine studies with a career in sports. According to a study commissioned by Studentum in 2020, Kuopio is Finland’s 6th most popular city for studying.
