Frequently Asked Questions

​I would like to start studying Finnish but I am not a student of the University of Turku. Can I participate in the Finnish for Foreigners Beginners' course?

Unfortunately, our Finnish for Beginners courses are only intended for the degree and exchange students of the University of Turku. Therefore, it is not possible to come and study only Finnish courses at the Language Centre. You would need to get admission to one of the faculties of the University first.

Do you offer any summer courses?

Unfortunately, we do not offer any language courses during the summer. However, the Summer University of Turku arranges summer courses. For more information, please see or contact  kesayliopisto[at]
