Basic Education at the Institute of Adult Education in Helsinki
The Institute of Adult Education in Helsinki offers basic education for 18 year-old or older adult immigrants. The aim of the basic education is to prepare students for further studies or enhance possibilities to find work. We follow the curriculum of the Finnish National Board of Education in our basic education.
Illiterate adult, apply for Basic Education and learn how to read and write!
How to apply
We do not accept applications during Summer between 12th June and 4th August. You can apply to basic education all year round. The education terms start in August or January. If you apply outside the application period, you 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 the application period opens.
Students are selected based on test results and interview. We test applicants’ language and mathematic skills. Each applicant receives an invitation for the test by e-mail or as a text message.
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.
Note! All groups are full at the moment and we don’t accept new students. We’ll inform about next year and possible test dates later in Autumn.
