Living in a municipality does not require it to be the municipality of residence as defined in the Municipality of Residence Act. It is enough that the nature of the stay in the municipality warrants for the stay to be considered living.
Compulsory education does not apply to Ukrainian children of compulsory education age receiving temporary protection if they do not have a municipality of residence in Finland and, consequently, are not permanently resident in this country. This means that they do not have a right to the free materials, devices and benefits to which children at compulsory education age are entitled. Should they wish, however, the education providers may offer a student free learning materials and devices (such as a computer) to support their studies.
