Registration is Now Open for our Finnish Courses!

Aug 7, 2023 | 2023, News

You can now register for the Autumn Term of our Finnish Courses! Registration is open until the 30th of August, and classes start in September.

We offer courses at all levels, and classes are open to everyone, no matter where you are based! This autumn, we are also offering an in person beginners’ course here at our office in Brussels.

The course fee is 300 euro per term, and you will be required to purchase a textbook (around 44-55 euro/book.) The textbooks used are part of the Suomen Mestari series. You can buy the online version of the book or you can get the book from the European Bookshop in Brussels. You can see which edition you should get from the course descriptions.

Already an advanced student? Then our new Selkeästi Suomessa course all about Finnish culture and society might be for you! Language skills at or above Level 4 are required as the course is mainly taught in Finnish.

Head over to our Finnish Courses Page to learn more about the levels, teachers, schedules, text books, and private lessons. You can also email the Institute’s Head of Administration who coordinates the language courses: Eeva-Maria Viitanen, if you have any questions.

See you in class! 🤓
