Swedish at work
Do you have an education either from your homeland or from Finland and need to learn the country’s languages in order to apply for a job? Or do you perhaps have a part-time job that can be combined with daytime studies? In that case you can choose either to study only Swedish (20h/week) or both Swedish and Finnish (20 + 8h/week).
