The International Visitor Programme, organized for the first time in 2019, complements the regular bachelor’s and master’s studies offered by Uniarts Helsinki’s Sibelius Academy by inviting artists who represent the highest talent level of their respective fields to come and teach in Finland. For the year 2020, six top professionals in their fields have been invited to the Sibelius Academy as visiting professors. The programme has received financial support from the Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation and Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation.
