Junior study programs

Junior studies (early study programs for high school students) can be a measure implemented to either accelerate or enrich learning. Students participating in junior study programs have a high cognitive ability in a specific area and attend courses at a university or other higher education institution while still in high school. Any certificates/qualifications attained during junior studies can, as a rule, be credited toward a subsequent degree program.
