Starting School in Other than Local School
The parent or guardian can apply for a right for their child to get to other than the local school of their student area. Applying for another school should be conducted through the Wilma system in the beginning of January at the latest.
Students residing in the student area of a school have a primary right to get to their local school before students applying from other student areas. If more students from other student areas apply to a school than can be taken in, the selection criterion will be the length of the student’s way to school.
Applying to language-oriented classes
The parent or guardian can apply for a right for their child to get to a language-oriented class. Applying should be conducted through the Wilma system in the beginning of January at the latest.
If the parent has not received a username for the Wilma system, a printed application form must be submitted to the desired school in the beginning of January at the latest.
Students who have been accepted to a language-oriented class but who do not reside in Turku must submit a non-resident application. Non-resident students will be accepted in a school only if the student places are not filled by Turku residents.
Students applying for language-oriented classes one year early can be accepted only if the child has been found ready for school attendance and if the language-oriented class has places left.
