An immigrant can be accepted for police education in Finland if she or he meets the application requirements for the studies. We select the students to the education by the points given in the entrance exam. Applicants ethnic background is irrelevant.
The application requirements include Finnish citizenship. The applicant must also master the teaching language, ie. Finnish or Swedish. The selection procedure includes a standard security clearance and at the same time any foreign connections, for instance, may also be determined. The significance of the security clearance results in student selection is assessed on a case-by-case basis.
More information on acquiring citizenship can be obtained from the Finnish Immigration Service.
