How to apply
You can apply to basic education all year round. The education terms start in August or January. If we don’t have any new groups starting or all our groups are full, your application will be placed on a waiting list. In case a place becomes available, we will invite you to a test. There will be advertising in various places when we have places available.
We also accept students who wish to study subject studies (for example maths, Finnish, English). If you wish to study singular subject studies, please contact our office.
