Finnish courses for international students

You can easily get by in Helsinki with English but learning the local language will make your stay more rewarding and give you more career options.

The University of Helsinki offers free Finnish language courses for enrolled exchange, visiting and international degree students. They are a fun way to learn the language, network with other international students across the fields and get to know more about Finnish culture.

Check out the Finnish courses for international students on the Instructions for Students -website.

The Finnish courses bring together international students across the fields from different faculties.
