Joint application to upper secondary education

Students in the ninth year of comprehensive school apply to upper secondary studies in the joint application process organised in spring. Upper secondary studies mean general upper secondary education or vocational education and training. 

Applicants are informed of the results of the joint application process in June. In the summer, it is still possible to apply to studies beginning in the autumn. If you do not know what you would like to study, your guidance counsellor will help you with making the decision.
