Information on Europass

Europass has been designed for everyone needing an international tool for the identification of competence. Europass promotes the person’s competences diversely.

  • Europass is your free online tool to help you manage your career and studies throughout your life. With your Europass you can create a personal record of all your skills, qualifications and experiences, as well as prepare and keep track of applications, design custom CVs and cover letters for different courses and studies. 
  • Europass helps students and employees present their knowledge and skills in a way that is easy to understand both in Finland and internationally.
  • Educational institutions and higher education institutions support internationalisation among students, issue Europass documents and guide students in the use of Europass.
  • Europass makes it easier for the employer or the educational institution to evaluate and compare the applicant’s competences and skills. The clear documentation of competence makes it possible to better utilise the competences and skills of the workforce. Europass helps teaching, education and guidance professionals to provide better guidance to those applying for a place in education or training.

Europass can be used free of charge. The Finnish National Agency for Education is the National Europass Centre in Finland. The National Europass Centre manages and develops Europass and communicates information about it.
