Basic Education at the Institute of Adult Education in Helsinki
The Institute of Adult Education in Helsinki offers basic education for 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
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 an entrance exam.
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.
Fill out the online application form. We do not accept paper applications at the moment due to the COVID19 -situation. Please fill out the online application as carefully as possible! If you need any help with the application you can contact us by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or 050 300 1817. Please check the opening hours of the office here if you need help in person!
