The OSU-project will improve both the access to education for those with an immigrant background and the employability of educated teachers.

For those with a conditional decision issued by the Finnish National Agency for Education on the recognition of the degree as comparable to the Master of Arts (Education) degree, will have a separate application for individual supplementary studies. The employment of the target group is supported through language development, career guidance, internship and networking opportunities. The project develops the application process for Schools of Professional Teacher Education for the immigrants.

The project involves several instances of higher education in Finland: Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Oulu University of Applied Sciences, JAMK University of Applied Sciences, Häme University of Applied Sciences and Haaga Helia.

The project is financed by Ministry of Education and Culture.
