Education for immigrants

At Tredu we offer a diverse range of options for education for immigrants. We support our students in many ways. We help both with the basic study skills as well as with gaining access to vocational studies. At the same time the students become acquainted with the study and work culture of Finland.


Educational provision

Basic education for adults

Basic education is suitable for you if you wish to learn the Finnish language as well as the basic subjects that are offered at school such as mathematics and English. You do not need any previous training.

Finnish language and culture

Education in Finnish language and culture is suitable for you if you have already attended a school in your home country or in Finland but wish to learn the Finnish language and culture.
