Helsinki Summer School does not provide any insurance for students. Please make sure that you have your own travel insurance when you arrive in Finland.
Finland is a party to the Schengen Agreement, which allows people to move freely within the Schengen area (all the Nordic countries and the EU with the exception of Great Britain and, Ireland and Cyprus). Accordingly, anyone entering Finland from within the Schengen area needs only a valid passport or some other official document issued for travelling purposes.
Students coming from outside of the Schengen area will need a passport and possibly also a visa.
How can I find out if I need a visa?
Check the list provided by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland to see if you will need a visa in order to enter the Schengen area.
If you will need a visa:
Make sure that your visa allows for a few travel days both before and after the Summer School session.
