Welcome to Oulu!

Welcome to Oulu course is usually a four week entity designed to equip newcomers in Oulu to begin life in their new hometown. The course offers the basics of Finnish language and information about Finnish society, public services, and way of life. The course is offered in different languages as per need and availability.

Personal guidance is a discussion with a professional about your situation as a whole and figuring out together what to do next. You can make a plan for your next steps in Oulu and Finland including for example Finnish language studies, getting familiar with life in Oulu, finding interesting freetime activities and developing your own competence.
