If you are looking for a suitable course, it is a good idea, first of all, to find out more about what your local adult education centre is offering. Most centres follow the Finnish academic year calendar, which consists of two terms, a spring term and an autumn term. A summer break is held between the terms, although some centres may also offer teaching during the summer months.
All adult education centres have their own course catalogue, which you can access online. Most centres will also be able to offer a print version of the course catalogue. These are usually available directly from the centre or at local libraries and other similar venues. If you have any questions regarding the courses available or the type of teaching offered, your local adult education centre will be delighted to hear from you.
Almost all adult education centres have now implemented online enrolment. For instructions on how to register as a student and deadlines, visit your local centre’s website. You can also register by telephone during office hours and some centres have offices that you can visit in person.If you have any questions relating to the curriculum or teaching, please contact your local centre.
