Opening of the 2019/2020 academic year

Sámi University of Applied Sciences (SUAS) officially opened 1st of November 1989. This was done as the Sámi’s long desire, to offer Sámi teacher education - and after that also other higher-level studies - in Sámi language and in a Sámi-language environment. To this day SUAS is a unique institution in the Nordic, and has through time become an ideal for other indigenous peoples.

This year we are celebrating the 30 year anniversary of Sámi University of Applied Sciences. We are celebrating throughout the year, with smaller and bigger happenings, including the official opening of the 2019/2020 academic year.

We would like you to join us on our 30th anniversary, and invite you to the official opening of the academic year, August 27th at 10AM-1PM in Sáhkaskáidi. We hope you will join us to celebrate.
