Finnish language and culture

CIMO’s Unit for Finnish Language and Culture promotes Finnish language and culture at universities outside Finland in a variety of ways. Our support is available to universities and their teachers and students. The Advisory Group for Finnish Studies at Universities abroad assists CIMO in this work by offering their expertise when required.

CIMO also works with Finnish universities and employers and offers Finnish students of Finnish and Finno-Ugric languages opportunities to work or train at universities outside Finland.

CIMO works together with other important organisations that also promote Finnish language and culture, such as the Finnish embassies and cultural institutes, the Finnish Literature Exchange FILI, the M. A. Castrén Society, Fulbright Center and the Nordkurs committee.
