General upper secondary education

""

The matriculation examination provides students with the eligibility to apply for higher education. Upper secondary school studies last three to four years, preparing the students for the matriculation examination.

Students in general upper secondary education intended for young people are usually 16 to 19 years of age. The scope of the syllabus is three years but studies may be completed in two, three or four years; students may proceed with their studies either as a group or individually.

At the end of upper secondary school studies, students take the matriculation examination, which provides eligibility to apply to higher education institutions (universities and universities of applied sciences).

General upper secondary education is also provided in foreign languages in Finland. These international examinations (IB, EB, RD) provide the same eligibility to apply to higher education institutions as the Finnish matriculation examination. These examinations are recognised internationally.
