General upper secondary education leading to the Reifeprüfung Diploma

The Reifeprüfung examination is the German school-leaving examination equivalent to the Finnish matriculation examination and, accordingly, German is also the language of instruction. Admission to upper secondary school requires good German language skills (Sprachdiplom I). The Reifeprüfung Diploma provides the same further study opportunities as the Finnish matriculation examination as well as eligibility for higher education in Germany and many other countries.

General upper secondary education at the German School of Helsinki

In Finland, Reifeprüfung examinations are organised by the German School of Helsinki. The German School of Helsinki is an international school that admits children and young people who have attended school in Germany or are otherwise proficient in German. German is the language of instruction in almost all subjects at upper secondary level, i.e. years 10–12.

You can apply to the Reifeprüfung programme directly to the school.  For further information about applying to the programme, see the programme description and the school website.
