The academic year of 2021-2022 is almost over and TYY wants to know how our international degree students are doing! TYY is collecting feedback from international degree students with a webropol survey. The Survey centers around three topics, the degree programs, Finnish Student Health Services and TYY.
Get your mead brewing, find your student caps from the dusty shelves, sew all your patches, fetch you picnic blankets from the summer storage... It's time for May Day to rise from the ashes and spread its wings to its former glory. Come witness the May Day comeback on 30.4.-1.5.!
May Day or "Vappu" is the Finnish version of Labour Day that we celebrate to honour working people. It is also the biggest student festival of the year, bringing together tens of thousands of students and other citizens of Turku.
The University of Turku offers Suomi-stipends for master's students fleeing war, free Open University teaching, and separate studies to those with temporary protection status in the country. The Student Union welcomes the efforts of the university.
Good teaching and counselling are core tasks of the University. We are looking for candidates of highly qualified teaching and well-operating courses of 2021-2022.
Are you inspired by global development and promoting education internationally? Are you concerned about climate change? Are you a persistent communicator, good at forming networks, or know a lot about funding? Do you want to put some of your knowledge to the use of the rest of the world?
The Student Union of the University of Turku is committed to donating 0.7% of its operating budget to development cooperation. The amount is divided between two organisations and the amount donated this year is about € 2700 per organisation. TYY is now looking for one donation target for 2022. The grant is to be used for 2022 activities.
In 2022, we donate half of the 0.7 % to our joint project with the Global Dry Toilet Association of Finland in Zambia and we are now looking for a second target to donate the remaining half of 0.7 %
Ahdistuksen, pelon ja huolen tunteet ovat normaaleja reaktioita vallitsevaan tilanteeseen. Tarjolla on kuitenkin keskusteluapua niille, jotka kokevat sen hyödylliseksi.
What did we advocate for in February? What kind of issues have been on agenda in international affairs, education policy and social policy?
During covid time, it has been possible to book rental premises with a more flexible cancellation policy. Now we return to regular policies from March 1.
The reservation can be canceled no later than 4 weeks before the rental date. If canceled 4 to 1 week before, 50 percent of full rent will be charged. If the cancellation occurs less than 1 week before the booking time, the full rental price will be charged.
Yesterday we woke up to shocking news from Ukraine. TYY condemns Russia's attack on Ukraine. TYY discusses with the university and SYL about the situation and is considering possible forms of support for students who are closely affected by the crisis.
However, in the midst of a crisis that closely affects us, we must remember that the conflict does not justify hatred towards Russians. TYY does not accept any kind of racism in the university community and especially now in the midst of the crisis we should focus on strengthening our community instead of hatred.
