The main task of Ab Yrkeshögskolan vid Åbo Akademi is to maintain Novia University of Applied Sciences, which was formed through the merger of the Swedish Polytechnic, Finland and Sydväst Polytechnic on August 1, 2008. Novia University of Applied Sciences has campuses in Vasa (Vaasa), Jakobstad (Pietarsaari), Raseborg and Åbo (Turku). The new organisation has a 150-year continuum of education, dynamic and adaptable to the changing needs of society.
