Finland Calling 2021

Pay a trip to Finland to learn about the Finnish educational system. Finland has frequently ranked in top positions in OECD PISA assessments. These assessments, made every three years, test the skills of 15-year-old pupils in mathematics, reading, the natural sciences, and other topics. The visit program is tailored according to the specific needs of the visiting group. A typical schedule of the FASSS intensive visit program can be sent on request. If you would like to visit Finland to participate in this program, please send an email to the President of FASSS: jukka.o.mattila@pp.inet.fi.
