Welcome Party Autumn 15.9.2016

Let's gather together to welcome all new international students to Turku.

There is an alternative for high tuition fees

The Student Union of the University of Turku (TYY) requires that the University of Turku re-considers if lower tuition fees would lure more students from outside EU and EEA and the university would maintain its level of internationalisation in the future as well.
