In this article, we intend to introduce one of the most interesting and latest services of Finlandq: studying in high school in Swedish language! Stay with us throughout the article to become familiar with the process of applying for this educational opportunity.
Studying in high school in Swedish
As you may know, Finland is located next to Sweden and if we look at the history of these two countries until 1809, Finland was considered part of the Swedish kingdom. After that, it was under Soviet rule until Finland gained independence from Russia in 1920. Because of this geographical proximity and of course the cultural ties between Sweden and Finland, Swedish is actually considered the second language of the Finnish people.
This closeness and cultural and linguistic mixture has led to the continued presence of Swedish-language educational institutions in Finland. Recently, Finlandq migration company has signed a contract with several Swedish high schools operating in Finland, providing an opportunity to register for high school education in the 2023 academic year by the deadline of February 27th. After completing the registration process for this project, you will have 5 months to learn Swedish and take advantage of the opportunity for free education.
