Erasmus+ programme

International cooperation is visible in many ways at Kerava Upper Secondary School

International activity is part of everyday life at Kerava Upper Secondary School. With the Erasmus+ accreditation granted by the Finnish Board of Education in 2021, European student groups as well as teachers visit our school during school year. In return, our students and teachers have the opportunity to get to know peers and colleagues in other European countries through cooperation with partner schools. Furthermore, several exchange students from European countries as well as outside Europe spend their exchange year in our school.

International activity, however, is not just about field trips and fun together; It also promotes international competence and involves important educational values such as tolerance and open-mindedness. Interaction with students and teachers from all over the world hones cooperation skills, global citizenship skills and encourages the use of versatile language skills.

Erasmus+ programme

Kerava Upper Secondary School is an accredited Erasmus+ institution. Erasmus+ is the European Union’s programme for education, youth and sport, which started in 2021 and will run until 2027.

The European Union’s Erasmus+ programme offers educational institutions and organisations the opportunity to work with their international partners. The programme promotes learning mobility for pupils, students, teachers and trainers, as well as cooperation, inclusion, excellence, creativity and innovation in education and training organisations. For students, mobility means either a week-long study trip or a long-term exchange of a period of time. Teachers have the opportunity to participate in job shadowing and in-service training courses in different European countries.

All mobility costs are covered by Erasmus+ project funding. Erasmus+ thus offers students equal opportunities for internationalisation.
