Your opportunities for study visits
Before you apply for vocational education we would like you to visit us, then you can see what the school looks like and meet the teachers.
You can see our accommodation and get to know Övertorneå.You will certainly have questions, and you can ask us direct.
If you are Swedish and planning to take your vocational education through Arbetsförmedlingen, they will pay for your trip. To have it paid for, contact your employment officer. Your employment officer then contacts the Employment Office in Övertorneå and they plan your study visit together.
Study visits via Arbetsförmedlingen often take place on Thursdays. But if your journey to Övertorneå is long you will arrive the next day.

Applicants seeking labour market training from Finland and Norway are also welcome to make a study visit, but there is no guarantee that you will have your trip paid for. For applicants from Finland the trip is paid for only if your need of labour market training is due to an injury or sickness. It is your Employment Office that decides whether or not you will have your trip paid for.
If however you wish to make a study trip independently, contact us at Utbildning Nord.
You find contact details for our different courses under Contacts.
