What is educational travel?

Finland is known and noted for its learning system and modern curriculum, which have led to our country having a substantial status in the global PISA rankings. This success has attracted a new type of international traveller to Finland: One who travels here to learn about the Finnish education system. Such travellers include education professionals, government and municipal education officials, education company representatives, principals and teachers and school children coming for an educational camp to try the Finnish education style for themselves. The interest is often focused on a specific strength identified as something that differentiates the Finnish system, such as phenomenal and experimental learning, and utilising nature as a learning environment.

Educational tours in Turku and Archipelago area are carefully planned combination of guided tours, site visits and hands-on learning opportunities in cooperation with University of Turku and Turku University of Applied Sciences.
