Basic Education is offered to immigrants over 18 years old. The goal is to give skills and abilities for further studies and/or working life and an opportunity to study single subjects separately.

The courses are arranged according to the principles laid out in the curriculum for Adult Basic Education set by the Finnish National Board of Education.


The Institute has declared to be A Discrimination-Free Zone, in line with The Ministry of the Interior campaign.

The Institute has signed the national corporate responsibility network FIBS ry:s Diversity Commitment.


The owner and administrator of the Institute is the Professional Staff Unions’ Study Association (Toimihenkilöjärjestöjen Opintoliitto ry TJO).
