How to apply?

Finnish applicants with completed comprehensive school studies

There is no separate entrance examination. After registering on www.opintopolku.fi applicants are selected on their school leaving reports with Finnish, English and Mathematics grades multiplied by two.

Application from abroad

The applicant must register on www.opintopolku.fi to be eligible for taking the entrance examination, which is conducted online. The details and regulations for the examination are sent to the email addresses entered upon registration. The entrance examination comprises Mathematics and English sections. In the cases of foreign applications, the latest school reports are submitted to Kannas school only if the school requests them. In special circumstances the principal may, at his discretion, allow other arrangements in the application process.  A foreign applicant’s previous grades do not account for the final examination score.

The school does not provide accommodation. So far, Kannas school does not require a foreign student to be accompanied by a custodian.

If you are interested in our IB-programme but you live abroad you can contact Kannas school’s IB-coordinator Sami Sorvali (phone: +358 44 4163064 or sami.sorvali@edu.lahti.fi) for further instructions.
