What to do when my child starts school in Finland?


This month we are talking about basic education for international children in Finland (7-16 years old). Not sure how to apply for a school place halfway through the academic year? Or perhaps you want to know how to choose a school, and what kind of options are available in Turku? And just who is the mysterious Wilma? Our team is on hand to answer these questions and give you all the information you need to make an informed choice about your children’s schooling.  

We are delighted to welcome Annika Rae (City of Turku, Education Services) as the speaker for this event. 

Due to the COVID-19 situation, our events are online via Zoom. The events are free to attend, but registration is required in advance. Once you have registered, you will receive an email with the Zoom link before the event. The language of the event is English.
