How to become a media pro?

After secondary school (peruskoulun ylä-aste), you can continue your studies either in a vocational school which is called ammattikoulu or high school, which is called lukio. High schools typically concentrate on general studies such as math, mother tongues, religion, physics, etc., while vocational schools are focused on education designed to provide technical skills required to perform the tasks of a particular and specific job.
