Transforming your world of work through adult education allowance

Studying is not only for young people. As an adult, you can also develop your previous expertise, or study something totally new.

Adult education allowance can be a way to secure your income during studies. 

If you fulfil the requirements for adult education allowance, you will have an opportunity to complete a degree or parts of it, or participate in additional vocational or professional training in Finland.  

You will have to be on study leave or other unpaid leave during the benefit period.  If you want to work during your studies, or you have other sources of income, you may be entitled to adjusted adult education allowance. 

Also entrepreneurs are entitled to adult education allowance. 

Ahvenanmaa follows its own regional Act on Financial Aid for Students.
