Nordic Quest College is a private institution of education and we offer education & training programmes certified by external partners in Finland and The UK. Know more about us here.
All our existing programmes including the Diploma Programmes, Educational Tour & Camp School packages as well as customised & on-demand training programmes in pedagogical & educational leadership & management are less than 90 days programme packages. Therefore, one can simply attend Nordic Quest College programmes with a Schengen Tourist Visa.
Acceptable reasons for granting visa can be further studies to supplement vocational skills or degrees already acquired, further training relating to work done in the country of departure, or special training available in Finland, such as training provided within the framework of Finnish education export initiatives. Our Diploma/Training Programmes as well as Finland Educational Tour Packages fall under this category.
Nordic Quest College can also deliver those programmes in clients' home countries or online in the form of live interactive video seminars from Finland depending on our clients’ needs and service requests.
Non EU applicants, who are admitted to study in the full time programme at Nordic Quest College, will require having a Schengen Tourist Visa. Therefore, before applying please ensure that you fulfil the following requirements as stated in the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs website, as well as the general minimum entry requirements for admission in our Diploma Programmes.
It is the applicants' responsibility to ensure that they have sufficient financial resources for living in Finland for the duration of their study/staying in Finland. Therefore, before deciding to apply for visa, make sure that you have enough funds for the entire period of your staying in Finland.
Please read carefully the official invitation letter and the included attachments from Nordic Quest College to know what it covers from the programme fee that you have paid and determine accordingly the other possible per day costs that are not included in the programme fee.
As an international person outside the European Union or European Economic Union, you must personally cover the costs if you become ill in Finland. In order to get a Schengen Tourist Visa, you must therefore take out private insurance that will cover your medical expenses. The insurance you need depends on the duration of your staying in Finland. If you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), you do not need to take out insurance.
For the Schengen Tourist Visa application, you can take out insurance from an insurance company in your home country. Alternatively, you may also take suitable insurance from an international insurance company. Please confirm from the local Finnish embassy/consulate office or Visa Application Center for the right kind of travel medical insurance policy that you need.
Applicants who have paid the tuition fee for the programme at The Nordic Quest College but get a negative decision on their visa/residence permit application and cannot come to Finland will be entitled for a full refund; except for the non-refundable application fee and subsequent bank commission charges.
The money shall be transferred to the verified bank account provided by the applicant within 1 month after we have received the official information about the negative visa decision.
