Support for Integration – Initial Assessment

Initial Assessment Supports Your Integration into the Finnish Society

Multilingual Info Mainio’s Initial Assessment is a proactive opportunity that helps international students living in the Tampere City Region.

The purpose of the Initial Assessment is to look into your profile and help you find the services you need to support your integration process, such as:

  • Assistance in job search
  • Career advising and counseling
  • Guidance to entrepreneurship services
  • Networking opportunities & events
  • Finnish language training
  • Other integration services


The Initial Assessment is for you if you:

  • have been living in Finland for less than 3 years
  • are a resident of the Tampere City Region
  • are a degree student (not an exchange student)
  • are not at the end of your studies: please note that, at the moment, Mainio conducts initial assessments primarily for 2nd year Bachelor’s and 1st year Master’s students
  • are not a customer of the TE office (an unemployed jobseeker)
