Finnish courses for international students

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

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.
