Työväenopisto in short
The Adult Education Centre of the City of Helsinki organizes evening, daytime and weekend courses for adults. We have a variety of classes with plenty of dates and times for you to choose from. There are also free lectures on various topics and specially designed courses for families and the elderly. The Centre has its own library, language laboratory (kielistudio) and open computer labs Aino and mikrotupa. Subjects taught are:
- social sciences
- health and wellbeing
The language of instruction can be Finnish, simple Finnish or a foreign language. Classes usually run once a week for 1—4 hours. Finnish courses run from 1 to 5 times a week for 2—4 hours. Courses are held in different areas around the city. Enrolment is continuous during our teaching terms.
All courses can be found at https://ilmonet.fi/#en.
Courses in different languages can be found at Ilmonet.fi > Advanced search > Teaching language.
At the end of the course, you can ask for a certificate of participation at the offices.
After registering for a course, you will receive an invoice by email. The invoice includes a direct payment link that is active for 2 weeks. If the invoice is not paid through online banking, it is sent to the customer's home address after the course has started. The paper bill costs 2 euros.
