Finnish language courses arranged in the Helsinki Region can now be found through the new online service at www.finnishcourses.fi.
The Finnishcourses.fi course search service is intended for all those who have moved to Finland and would like to learn the language.
The service features information from Finnish language course organisers in Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen. The organisers include vocational institutes, workers’ institutes, upper secondary schools for adults and various organisations. Most of the courses are open to all, and the prices vary depending on the scope of each respective course. Some courses are free of charge.
About 500 courses are held in the Helsinki Region every year.
Users can search for course information based on course level, municipality, description and time. The information can be searched in Finnish, English and Russian.
The new course search service already features information on Swedish language courses, even though the development of the Swedish language course search is still under preparation.
With the Finnishcourses.fi course search, users can gain a good grasp of the current course availability in the region in one go and select a suitable course on that basis. To enrol for a course, contact the organiser.
The course search is maintained by the Info Bank editorial team of the City of Helsinki Communications Office. The course organisers are responsible for the course information provided.
The Finnishcourses.fi course search service has received partial funding from the European Social Fund (ESF).
The Finnish language course search is available at www.finnishcourses.fi.
