About VNF
About VNF

VNF is an independent, Finland-Swedish folk high school, maintained by a group of local authorities. Dynamic in outlook, it endeavours to raise the students' level of general education, it provides specialized courses, it promotes further study and supports a positive overall personality development, including social competence. 

We have about 150 students, which is one of the largest enrolments out of comparable colleges in Finland. Among the Finland-Swedish folk high schools we are incomparably the largest. 

VNF is situated in a park on the banks of the Svartå river (Mustionjoki), close to the town centre. The college buildings were built in 1970–2010.
