Why are so many people moving to Finland from the UK?
Finland is a successful modern democracy with a high level of prosperity. It is also one of the most beautiful countries in the world, with lush forests, stunning snowy mountain peaks and picturesque lakes. The most common reasons why people are moving to Finland from the UK include:
Finland has a very strong economy
For the most part, Finland has a stronger economy than the United Kingdom. The unemployment rate is usually lower and GDP per capita is usually higher. The largest sector in Finland is services, followed by manufacturing and energy. Finland also produces a lot of materials for exporting, including gold, iron, copper, and timber. Finland is a great country to move to if you are looking for work or interested in starting a business.
The natural environment is incredible
You will be absolutely blown away by the beauty of Finland. It is a nature-lover’s paradise. Some of the best spots include Lake Saimaa, Yyteri (Finland’s longest beach), Nuuksio National Park, Koli National Park and Halti (Finland’s highest peak).
The food is great
The Finns love their food! This is reflected by the many great restaurants and cafes around Finland. Finland is also known for having incredible food markets. They attract fresh produce from around Europe, including some rare delicacies like wild mushrooms from the local forests. You can also enjoy some Finnish specialities including Karjalanpiirakka (rye crusts stuffed with rice), korvapuusti (cinnamon and cardamon rolls) and fried vendance.
The education system is the best in the OECD
The Finnish education system is extraordinary. Out of the 38 OECD countries, Finland’s education system ranks #1 for reading, #1 for science and #5 for mathematics. If your children are going to start school in Finland, you should consider yourself lucky! The World Economic Forum also ranks Finland #1 for tertiary education.
Attending school is compulsory for all children between the ages of 7 and 16 in Finland. After the age of 16, students can attend a vocational training school, prepare for university or enter the workforce. The schools in Finland are well-funded and designed to deliver equal outcomes to students — a school in a small town has the resources necessary to deliver the same educational outcomes as a school in a major city.
