Students of Finnish language in universities outside Finland can get a trainee placement in a Finnish organisation through the Finnish in Finland training programme. In 2018, for example, there were placements in Youth Centre Piispala, in the Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival and in the Nelimarkka Museum.
The trainee placement lasts from 1 to 6 months. If an employer pays the salary of the trainee, it can last up to 18 months. Most of the placements are available during the summer, which is the most convenient time for students, too.
Trainees can work, for example, in customer service, as assistants, camp supervisors, teachers or translators.
