Learn in English and Finnish
Eira High is about getting people new to Finland or those returning to the country to earn their place in Finnish higher education. Interested?
We offer the following High School Level qualifications:
The High School Leaving Certificate - lukion päättötodistus
The Finnish national curriculum for secondary education is broad based and aims to develop mature, cultivated individuals. The curriculum includes core subjects such as English, Maths, Science and humanities, and äidinkieli or Finnish as a second language which has parity status.
There are compulsory and elective courses. The High School Leaving Certificate is awarded on completion of the forty-four courses.
In some cases the High School Leaving Certificate alone confers the right to take an entrance test at polytechnic.
The Finnish Matriculation Exam
Students completing The High School Certificate go on to sit the final matriculation exam in Finnish. Passing the matriculation exam means gaining the coveted ‘white hat' and gives the possibility of sitting entrance exams at university. Details of the matriculation exam can be found at the Finnish Matriculation Exam official website.
Cambridge AS and A Level
Eira High School currently offers Cambridge qualifications in Art, Biology, English, History, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology and Thinking Skills.
