Explore the Finnish Education


The next Lapland International Forum for Education, LIFE2018, is now open for registration. 

At the conference, organised by visitEDUfinn and the University of Lapland, you will hear from top Finnish speakers on various aspects of Finnish education. 

You will be able to visit several schools and talk to their staff to explore what you have seen. You will also have the chance to network with fellow professionals from around the world.  

In addition to school visits, you may take part in a variety of social events, such as seminars and workshops, and a city of Rovaniemi reception and dinner, which are all included in the fee. 

Want to learn new pedagogical skills in an innovative way? The University of Lapland has agreed to put on a very special activity for up to 20 people called "A Playful Learning Adventure" that's uniquely designed for LIFE2018 participants.  

The conference, from 16 to 20 January 2018, takes place right by the Arctic Circle in the city of Rovaniemi, which is also known as the official hometown of Santa Claus. During the event, you will have an opportunity to participate in many other amazing Arctic adventures and experiences.

It will be a truly unique event in a spectacular setting where you can choose to create your own experience around a wide selection of choices. And there is the option for your partner to join you for social aspects and Arctic experiences.

Register your place by the end of September and you can take advantage of the early bird discount where you will save 100 euros per participant and 50 euros per partner.
