You will get your YKI certificate around 2 months after the test date.
We will post the certificate to the address you gave when you registered for the test.
YKI tests are organised in many different languages and at various skill levels around Finland. A large number of people take these tests. This is why it takes some time before you get your certificate. You should remember this when you are selecting a test date.
Is your certificate ready?
Have you moved?
We will post your YKI certificate to the address you gave when you registered for the test. Please remember that addresses are not updated in the YKI register automatically. Instead, you must notify us of your new address yourself.
If your address has changed, send an email to yki-info [at] jyu.fi (yki-info[at]jyu[dot]fi)
Do you need a new YKI certificate?
The test fee includes one certificate. You select the language of your certificate when you register for the test. If you need a new YKI certificate, send an email to yki-info [at] jyu.fi (yki-info[at]jyu[dot]fi)
You can receive the certificate in Finnish, Swedish, or English. A new copy of the certificate costs 15 euros. The certificate will be sent to you by post.
How long will the certificate be valid?
Your YKI certificate will never expire. You should remember, however, that your language skills will get worse if you do not use the language. For this reason, an employer may test your language skills if, for example, you apply for a new job and give an old certificate to the employer. The employer may want to interview you, or ask you to re-take the YKI test.
