Shared contact teaching studies by general upper secondary schools

The city's general upper secondary schools shared contact teaching coures are a good way to get to know other schools – for example, you can visit another school and complete an applied study unit not offered at your own school. Make sure that you are able to participate in contact teaching in another school.

You can take part in the contact teaching offered by in city's shared catalogue at any general upper secondary school run by the city. The lessons are held in time slots 6, 7 and 8 of the weekly schedule. The periods correspond to the five-period system of the city's general upper secondary schools.

You will take part in contact teaching at the school that provides the study unit. In other words, you cannot complete the study unit independently or only by passing the exam. You also cannot choose two overlapping study entities. If some of your own school’s study units partly overlap with study units you are taking at another school on one day per week (for example, general upper secondary schools that follow the four-period system), this is an acceptable reason for an absence.

The list of shared contact teaching studies offered by the city's general upper secondary schools is available on Wilma. Registration for these studies is open until the start of the period.
