Respond to the student livelihood survey!

We invite you to respond to the student unions’ livelihood survey! This survey will examine students’ livelihood, employment and housing, as well as any changes regarding them. The survey generates relevant and up-to-date information on the financial status of university students across Finland. The survey responses will be utilised for the livelihood survey and in student representation. Your responses are valuable and will contribute to fact-based advocacy.

The study is implemented by the Finnish Research Foundation for Studies and Education Otus. The study is commissioned by The Student Union of the University of Turku (TYY), The Student Union of Tampere University (TREY), The Student Union of the University of Eastern Finland (ISYY), The Student Union of the University of Jyväskylä (JYY), and The Student Union of Åbo Akademi University.

Responding to the survey is voluntary and can be done anonymously. Responses will be processed confidentially, and individual respondents will not be identifiable in the results.

Each student union will choose one student among their respondents who will win an S Group gift card valued at 150 euros.


It takes about 15 minutes to complete the survey and you can respond until October 31st.
