Community College, alasivun pääkuva
The studies at the Community College are open to everybody. Courses start mainly in the autumn and in the beginning of the year. One can study a variety of subjects such as computer science, music, sports, dance, manual skills, cookery, drama as well as arts and crafts. Teaching language is mainly Finnish, but in most lessons some instructions in English can be made available (check at Customer Service Center). Language studies are also offered, e.g. in Finnish, Swedish, English, German, French, Russian, Spanish and Italian.
The course offer varies and is available at the college's online service, including the fee information and teaching language (Finnish, unless otherwise mentioned). The application is also easiest via the online service. Applications should be submitted at least a week before the start of a course. Courses start if enough people have signed in (minimum number normally 6–9 persons).
