Four out of five students in the field of culture were studying in arts in 2018, according to Statistics Finland.

Studying of arts has been very popular, but those graduating from arts have had on average weaker employment possibilities immediately after graduation than those graduating from other fields of education.

The numbers of students started to fall from 2013 onwards and the number of qualifications from 2015. In 2018 around 7,800 qualifications were completed.

Around 63 per cent of those having completed a qualification in culture in 2017 were employed or employed students one year after graduation. Around 15 per cent were full-time students and the same share were unemployed.

There were 83,000 persons aged 18 to 74 in the population with a qualification in culture in 2017.

One-tenth of them had under EUR 12,000 of earned or entrepreneurial income subject to state taxation, around 30 per cent over EUR 12,000 but under EUR 27,000, about 47 per cent between EUR 27,000 and 51,999 and around 13 per cent over EUR 52,000.
