'Profiles of Finland' is a distance study programme for all those who would like to exercise their minds and explore new aspects of Finland. Compiled by the University of Helsinki, the programme gives an introduction in Finnish history, geography, society, and art and culture.

Each of the four modules is accompanied by a study day at the Institute, taught by Finnish and British experts on the subject. Students can aim for a Diploma in Finnish Studies awarded by the University of Helsinki, join the course just for fun at any point in the programme or just come along for the study days.

The one remaining study day this summer is on Saturday 28 June. It has as its theme 'Finnish Society'. The speakers are Professor Matti Peltonen (University of Helsinki) on The Problem of a Divided Peasantry in Finnish Rural History and Professor Tim Ingold (University of Manchester) on People, Communities, Society.

For more information, please contact Ms Pirkko Hautamäki at the Finnish Institute.
