Hi,
I am not Finnish and I do not live in Finland.
I can only tell you my experience being there some times for few weeks to work.

First: It is cold!
Yes, I know you know but cold really means cold. Minus 10 or more is standard in winter. You should consider this.
Despite of this climate conditions people there is friendly and keep meet each other. But ice and snow for who has no habit to it is a real issue.
This in Winter of course. In summer I think they rarely reach 30°C, so it will not be too hot to.

Study level is very high, on the high side of the rank in european standards. Hi-tech engineers from Finland are very skilled.

To find a job as a general european rule is not an easy task and the finnish economy situation is not at high level as Germany.

Just my 2cents.

My cousin lives there, and she likes it a lot more than UK, as of when she started school education was totally FREE, she gets to learn a new language and people are friendly. There are also lots of menial jobs that are not too demeaning. Hope that helps

But as someone said,it's really cold. Personally, I feel if you're not sickly you anyone can adapt to cold.

Hope that helps smiley
