Education advice for free

Thinking of studying, but don’t know where to start? Whatever your situation with work or in life may be, you can contact our education advisers and book a free appointment at our Citypiste service point next to the Market Square so that we can explore your options together!

Education advice is for people of all ages, no matter whether you are considering learning a new profession, supplementing your professional competence, completing your studies or updating your personal competence. We can work together to find the most suitable option for your situation. You can also obtain advice for example on how to find ways to finance your studies – or any concern you may have related to studying or education.

Contact us by calling +358 50 452 3614 or by sending an e-mail to citypiste(at)samiedu.fi and we can schedule a time for a discussion. If necessary, advice can also be provided by phone or remotely online.
