TYY International Award 2020 for ELSA Turku, honorable mention to TuKY

News | 18.12.2019
Each year, TYY gives an international award to one TYY organisation for promoting internationalisation. Through the suggestions made by the organisations, TYY International Wing suggested TYY Executive Board to select ELSA as the winner of the award 2020.

ELSA Turku uses English in event descriptions when knowing Finnish is not necessary for the participants, which lowers the threshold to attend. ELSA Turku has also collaborated with our organisation ESN Uni Turku, throughout the year. The organisation’s Executive Board has also international degree student, which is also a sign of successful international activities. The award was given to ELSA Turku at the TYY Organisation Forum on 10 December.

TuKY is honored for its fine work this year. We considered it great to have an international responsible person on the board who guides international students in the Finnish student culture. There are also many international tutors who are active in the organisation.
