Pre-year - How to apply from Finnish comprehensive schools
All pre-year applicants apply to upper secondary (lukio) schools via Opintopolku (the National Joint Application) system. The application must reach Opetushallitus (National Board of Education) by the deadline given.
Because of COVID-19, Ressun lukio will not arrange entrance exams in 2021. In spring 2021, the 75 applicants with the best grade point average (of the theoretical subjects of the school-leaving report in Opintopolku) will be admitted.
NB! If you study in a school that does not use the Finnish grading system from 4 to 10, you probably have to choose “harkinnanvarainen valinta” in your Yhteishaku application (for example the European School of Helsinki, the International School of Helsinki). Even though your school is in Finland, you are still applying with a non-Finnish school background. Check with your school’s student counsellor if you are unsure!
