VISITEDUFINN

VisitEDUfinn - Reliable Provider of Finnish Education

LIFE2018_day5_icerestaurant (5)

VisitEDUfinn Ltd. was founded in 2016 by education professionals with a track record of organizing successful events, study tours and school visits in other organizations. The current Chairman of the Board is Mr. Aulis Pitkälä, former Director General of the Finnish National Agency for Education.

VisitEDUfinn is an official member of Education Finland. Education Finland is a governmental cluster programme supporting the best education providers in their growth on the international market. The programme is coordinated by the Finnish National Agency for Education.

Solid growth of VisitEDUfinn was rewarded in 2018 when it earned The Strongest in Finland -certificate. The certificate is a sign of a company’s positive financial figures, background information and good payment behaviour. It tells the customers, partners, credit allowers and other stakeholders that cooperation with the company is on a steady foundation. The certificate is based on the Rating Alfa, a credit rating of Suomen Asiakastieto. The certificate was renewed in November 2019.

In 2019 VisitEDUfinn’s LIFE was one of the winners in Authentic Finnish Educational Travel Product -contest and is therefore entitled to use the label Authentic Visit Finland Experience.

The office of VisitEDUfinn is located in an old school building from the 19th century. The building has also been home to the city of Helsinki’s Center for Education and Development and since 2014 it has been the Center for Entrepreneurship. The office is only a 15-minute walk from the city center, and the Finnish National Agency for Education and the University of Helsinki’s Department of Education are also nearby.
