Language skills are an asset on the job market. At the Language Centre, you can study in a flexible way to attain good, diverse language skills. The Language Centre is in charge of the studies in the foreign language and the other national language of Finland required for degrees, as well as for the communication studies in the native language when the faculty does not provide teaching in the native language. In addition to the required studies in a foreign language, native language (Finnish or Swedish) and the second national language of Finland (Swedish or Finnish), remember to take advantage of the other learning opportunities, as the Language Centre offers teaching in more than a dozen different languages.
Start planning your language studies at the beginning of your studies. If you intend to study a language that you have no previous competence in, you should start your language studies during your first year so that you have enough time to gain a level of proficiency that can support your studies, work and international activities.
