Turun Suomalainen Yhteiskoulu Upper Secondary School Natural Sciences Track
The natural sciences track of Turun Suomalainen Yhteiskoulu Upper Secondary School has a special task granted by the Ministry of Education. It is possible to emphasize natural science subjects – physics, chemistry, biology and geography – at the upper secondary school, and on certain conditions to leave out eight mandatory courses from other subjects, respectively. It is also possible to focus on one or two natural science subjects according to postgraduate study ambitions. Students at the natural science track get a versatile base for higher education studies.
Courses are executed in close co-operation with the University of Turku, Turku University of Applied Sciences, Turku Vocational Institute and various businesses in the Turku region. Laboratory courses are an integral part of the studies and courses include field trips and trips abroad.
Approximately 50 students are selected into the natural sciences study track annually. The joint application process takes into account the grade point average of theoretical subjects weighing the grades of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and geography.
