Newcomer Information Sessions

International House Helsinki (IHH) organises regular Newcomer Information Sessions that cover the steps international newcomers need to take before and after arriving in Finland.

All sessions are free and open to those who are either moving to Finland for work or due to family ties. Each session is held in English and takes place online.

  • Housing
  • The local healthcare system
  • The Finnish education system
  • Support available for partners and spouses
  • Introduction to jobseeking and entrepreneurship in the capital
  • Employee rights

You are welcome to attend the entire session, or only join for the sections that appeal to your needs.

Please note our Newcomer Information Sessions are designed to fit the needs of international newcomers and prospective newcomers who are moving to the capital region for work or based on  family ties.
