Will the TE Office organise a Finnish language course for me?

If your integration plan is valid, you can be given the possibility to participate in immigrant integration training. The training usually includes Finnish or Swedish language studies as well as an introduction to Finnish society, culture and working life. The training can also include other studies and on-the-job training. The Finnish language is studied as part of the integration training. The TE Office does not organise separate Finnish language courses.

The course of the integration training varies according to each immigrant’s needs. It is influenced by, among other things, the immigrant’s individual characteristics and conditions as well as their needs and wishes.

You can search for Finnish language courses in the following web page, for example: www.finnishcourses.fi You have to inform the TE Office before starting a course.
