  1. My daughter is now 17 and she’s looking for different alternatives after high school. Will her local (FInnish) diploma be accepted by you for entrance when she gets it in 2021-2013?

    • Hi Saku, the Ylioppilastutkinto / studentexamen (Matriculation Examination) is considered equivalent to the school leaving exam here in Ireland. In order to be considered, she would need to present a minimum of five subjects with two at Grade 5 and two at Grade 3, to include English plus specific programme requirements. For programmes with Leaving Certificate points requirement of 500 and over, applicants will be required to present with a minimum six subjects.
      Kind regards,
