Finland is a popular country for Erasmus+ KA1 courses – mostly organised by foreign providers

Surprisingly, Finland is number 8 on the list of KA1 courses offered in 32 Erasmus+ member countries. There are 74 such courses offered in this country.

Number 1 – according to School Education Gateway – is the UK thanks to British language courses, 429.

The Mediterranean countries come after the British Isles: Spain (361), Italy (340), Greece (227), Portugal (165), Malta (138) and Cyprus (77).

Finland’s position as the 8th may reflect the good image of the country as a PISA winner and as a European example of top school education.

After Finland Croatia (72) and Germany (71) take the positions 9-10.

Except for Finland, other Nordic countries are pretty low on the list: Sweden 23h, Norway 24th, Denmark 26th and Iceland 27th. The number of KA1 courses offered in those countries varies from 22 (Sweden) to 18 (Iceland).

The most of the Erasmus+ courses offered in Finland are organised by foreign providers. The chances of domestic providers are weakened by heavy taxation in the country.
