P-klubi welcomes new international students

News | 23.1.2019

Hello international students and welcome to Turku!

Turun yliopiston politiikan tutkimuksen klubi ry or just P-klubi is an association for students studying Contemporary History and Political Science at the University of Turku. P-klubi was founded in 1975 as the two previous clubs for students – The Club for Contemporary History and the Club for Political Science – merged into one. Thus P-klubi became the largest association for Students within the Social Sciences faculty and has remained so, when examined by the amount of its members and general activity. P-klubi is one of the most active Students’ organisations within Turku University.

 P-klubi focuses on arranging various activities for its members. These activities consist of parties, discussion nights on current political topics, sports and cultural activities, student trips etc. Our job is to look after our members’ interests, hence one of our most important tasks is to act as spokesman between the students and the Departments of Contemporary History and Political Science, the Faculty of Social Sciences, the University in general and the Students Association within the University.

Our membership costs 20€ and it’s valid for life. As a member you can:

  • come to our office (Toimisto) and drink coffee for free, discuss about the latest political topics, buy overalls and other products, or just hang out
