Finland Discovery

  • Finland Discovery

Description

The overall focus of the Finland Discovery Programme is to offer the students unique experiences in Finnish school immersion, educational institution visits, exclusive hands-on workshops, sightseeing and excursion.  Therefore, this programme is an innovative approach rather than a traditional study visit. Throughout the school immersion and workshops, the participants have an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the world leading educational system.  Furthermore, the emphasis is also put on getting to know the Finnish culture and unique nature. All the venues of this programme are not only authentic but also present a rich variety of fields from science to history and nature. 

The agenda of Finland Discovery Programme is organised by CU together with our network of partner institutions. The programme is organised in three locations: Turku and Helsinki, Finland and Stockholm, Sweden. The eight-day programme ensures the best learning outcomes for the students.  

The Finland Discovery Programme will deliver the following results for the students:
• Exposure to Finland and its culture
• Experience a voyage to Stockholm
• Get to know student life in Finland
• Use of technology in Finnish school environments
• Learn about the innovative use of learning environments in Finland
