Voluntary additional basic education (10th grade)

Voluntary additional basic education is aimed at young people, who wish to improve their learning skills for their future studies. The goal is that after an additional year of school, the pupil will have a study plan for upper secondary education and the abilities to pursue that plan.

The learning outcomes and contents are described in Finnish in the curriculum for additional education, Lisäopetuksen opetussuunnitelma (not available in English at the moment).

In order to be admitted, the pupil should have completed their basic education and be a Helsinki resident.

In the academic year 2021-2022 voluntary additional basic education is provided at Stadin AO, Helsinki Vocational College and Adult Institute’s Hattulantie, Kullervonkatu, Ilkantie and Vilppulantie units.

Voluntary additional basic education should be applied via Studyinfo.
