Welcome Party Autumn 15.9.2016

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

Comprehensive scholarship system to attack tuition fees

In its meeting in August, The Board of the University of Turku decided about tuition fees for the non EU/EEA students in English Master's Degree programmes.The way how the University of Turku could still stand out from all other Finnish universities, is a comprehensive scholarship system. The tuition fees do not apply to exchange students.

Language Circles for international students and Finnish students start in September

Language circle is a free time activity carried out by international and Finnish students. There are voluntary meetings where international students can meet Finnish and other international students. Groups are available in different languages.

Comment: Students’ move to general housing allowance must be clinched

The undersigned student unions thank the Government for its plans to have general housing allowance cover students. This move would give students a more equal status with other population groups and significantly improve many students’ subsistence.
