To become a librarian in Finland one has to have a master´s degree which includes at least 35 study units in information and library science. Normally it takes from four to six years to complete the master’s degree.

There are only three universities in Finland, which provide courses in information and library science, namely, Tampere, Oulu, Åbo Akademi in Turku.

As for other actual librarians, there are a number of vocational high school and collages which train other library professionals such as library assistants.
