The University of Helsinki Centre for Continuing Education offers customized professional educational visits in English that are designed to showcase Finnish practices in education. Founded in 1640, the University of Helsinki is the oldest university in Finland. With a student body of 36,500, it is also the largest university in Finland and one of the leading multidisciplinary universities in the world. Teacher education is one of the core competences of the university.
“We had a great time and the students were immersed into the various aspects of the Finnish Educational system. I believe that this experience has so impacted their thinking that aspects they observed and found interesting may eventually get introduced in diverse ways. I think they are now also more aware of the relationship between the culture of a society and the educational system.”
