Finnish Educational Transitions (FinEdu) Studies

Leader: Katariina Salmela-Aro

Finnish Educational Transitions (FinEdu) Studies is a collaborative project by Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies and the University of Jyväskylä. The aim of the project is to study the educational transitions and choices, along with factors associated with them, that young people face after compulsory comprehensive education. Specifically, the study concerns the transition from comprehensive school to secondary education and the subsequent transition to either working life or to further or higher education. The aim is to investigate the educational transitions and choices of the youth with a special emphasis on the role of personal goals, motivation, and subjective well-being.

More information about the project is available on their website
