I have heard a bit about Conscription in Finland, and that everyone has to join the military service over 18 at least once. Me being an english person, hoping to move to finlnad, would i also be mandatory to join the service?

To be exact, no unless...

You stay here and you naturalize to Finnish citizenship before you turn 30, than you have to join the service. :wink: (there are some exceptions about having served in your own country already etc.)
