School town

Oulainen is a town of schools, where people come to study from even further away. About a thousand students are seen in the young townscape.

The town’s educational system network functions well. After primary and secondary school, there are many possibilities to study.

The Health Care unit of the Oulu University of Applied Sciences operates in Oulainen. In addition to the health studies you can study business as well as nutrition and cleaning services at the Oulainen Vocational College.

In addition to the college and university level education, we offer a variety of educational programs at the Adult Education Centre of Jokihelmi. All schools offer course for adults.
