It’s great that you are interested in our courses!

Secondary adult education is for those who want an education that corresponds to nine years of basic schooling. It is for those who wish to improve in reading or writing, or to study a subject that you need to be able to apply to upper secondary school education.

With us you can study several courses that correspond to secondary school years 7-9. The courses are suitable for adults that can take responsibility for their own studies.
