Education and training

Last updated: 5 9 2018

There are many different education programmes for adults.

There are programmes at the:

  • Basic level
  • Upper secondary level
  • Post-upper secondary level

If you are too old to attend compulsory or upper secondary school, you can instead study on municipal adult education programmes or at a folk high school, for example. At the basic level you study subjects that correspond to those taught in compulsory school. At the upper secondary level you take courses that correspond to those taught in upper secondary school.

If you have completed an upper secondary education you can continues studying at the post-upper secondary level, at a university, a university college or in higher vocational education, for example.
