You will definitely miss some things from Naija while here, it could be the very little or basic things like getting a nice hair cut, having a proper social life, food, English language, especially if you find yourself outside these cities: Helsinki, Tampere, Espoo, maybe Jyväskylä and Vaasa....So you gaz improvise a lot, for example, I learned to barb my hair by myself because of absence of black barbers, I nor fit pay 50 euro make one oyibo girl use my hair take train na angry sometimes swallow go dey hungry me, grin na potato I dey ground then turn am to eba one kind, then use my draw soup take follow up....Never understimate these small things oh, it is why USA, Canada, UK, Australia that have tens of thousands of black people have the advantage over the Nordics....but we gaz start from somewhere...abi?

I seldom visit travel section but I had to out of curiosity and research purposes. I just clicked some random threads and this happened to be one of them. This thread is one that intrigued me.
What I deduced is that the OP, ibrahimovic303, is a good person; he is simple to the core.
I commend you for this thread and the way you've carried everyone along in this thread sharing your experience and knowledge about Scandinavian countries (Finland in particular). You've kept the thread moving even though some nairalanders residing there decided to stay mum and ignore the thread or rather observe on low-key mode.
You were patient enough to answer certain questions again and again.
Still running my programme here in naija but the thread is eye opening and interesting.
In case I wan comot for naija, Finland will be on my radar.
Thanks for the enlightenment and keep up with the great job. Amazing thread!
Finland na Introverted country that's why dem just dey the way you describe them.

Brothers let me share something intriguing with you people...I started driving in Festac when I was 14, as in I love driving, but since I started driving in the winter in this country, it is like I am learning afresh...In the past few weeks, it has been an average of -17, and suddenly in the last three days, it dropped to -2...omor the roads became very slippery, I was driving at normal 80km/hr on the Vaasa speedway and had my winter wheels oh (here in Finland, you must have summer and winter wheels, otherwise na police trouble), na so my car just turn 360 degrees for road come face deep gutter oh lol...I just dey shout Jesus throughout...na so my body dey shake, I sha contined my trip, this time at 50km/hr cheesy But I thank God....So by and by, cars will generally help you better in smaller cities, in places like Helsinki or Tampere, bus and train/tram services are commonplace, so owning a car is optional.

Everything was just perfect until I saw ´HND´...truth be told, it is very tricky, but not impossible. But I tell you this, they will definitely pick someone with a Bsc over you initially...So let me make enquiries on target schools or options, then get back to you

Let me update the thread with something about the Finnish work culture...Here in Finland, emphasis is based on what you can actually produce, not like our dear country, Nigeria with their 2.1 or 2.2 hullabaloo....Well, as a developer in an IT firm here, I just needed to show my interviewer a few things on his laptop, and that was sufficient to land me the job....I resumed, and was shown my desk, my pc, my laptop and that is it! Emphasis here is on what you can produce, as in once you are good and valuable to the white man, he will bring you closer irrespective of race or whatsoever....So what am I saying? You have to make yourself useful to them, and prove beyond resonable doubts that you are competent....In Naija, only a 2.1 is enough for this most times, or a good crammer....Let that sink in, as you plan to migrate. I think this mentality is developing little by little in Naija with multinational firms...I had a friend in Uni that finished with a 3rd Class, but he was a software guru who did big things...All the Nigerian firms chased him away, because of his grade...Guess what? Dude is currently doing what he knows how to do best in Silicon Valley, USA.....Naija I hail oh undecided

Nice work Zlatan,we had a nice little talk, and to add my voice to this great thread ,you just gotta remain positive in this country and lots of doors would open for you. These guys are interested in what you can do not in the color of your skin most of the time ,though I can boldly say that learning the language might brighten your chances more, lots of opportunities remain untapped, opportunities keeps opening each day ,you just have to look in the right places and associate with positive minded people.
I would suggest that peeps that are in Finland already should update the thread about opportunities in their region. We can work togeda to achieve greater good. Organisations like Foodera,wolt, iss employ people in some regions here.
You can't regret coming to this country ,despite the weather,the language barrier and their social life, you go dae alright laslas

And for those asking for info for migrating using the student option ,this is the thread to get 100% info on all the processes,if you have other specific questions you can ask.

https://www.nairaland.com/1064724/studying-finland-free-tuition/290

And for those who feel Finland is not a good country to travel to, giving a list of reasons ,we know already ,that's why we are here,we don't need your opinion here.

Feel free to ask questions,I would be willing to answer the ones I can.
Kiitos Paljon
