Hi and welcome... thank you and goodbye!

Summercourse2018 04The headline above says it all; there are a lot of people coming to Lärkkulla nowadays and of course, also leaving us. It seems like only yesterday that we had the graduation party for the academic year 2017 – 2018 and almost right away after that we welcomed all the students of the summer course of 2018.

When we started the summer course on the 4th of June, nobody could expect the kind of summer we were going to have. It was the hottest summer since records began over 280 years ago. Lärkkulla not being the most modern place when it comes to air condition and fresh air in general, the heat took a toll on everybody involved. As a result a lot of lessons were held outside. I admire you all for not complaining (at least officially…) and just digging deep in yourself and studying as well as possible. Thank you!

The Summer Courses have started

The courses gather people from all over  the world and this year we have students from Russia, Vietnam and Australia to mention a few.
