The Student Union of the University of Turku (TYY) would like to welcome you to Turku and to the University of Turku. We are happy to have you here and we wish to meet you at the Orientation Course!
Tamara Yakaboski, Associate Professor from the US and currently working at the Finnish Institute of Education Research (University of Jyväskylä) is interested in the impact of tuition fees for international (non-EU) students studying in Turku and wants to interview fee-paying international students and those international students who were liable for fees but received scholarship. If you are interested please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Centre of Language and Communication Studies is looking for tutors of English, Spanish, Italian, Korean, French and Swedish. The task of the language tutor is to work as a organizer of his /her language group. Language tutor takes part in and organizes weekly meetings with his/her group. Language circles start in week 37. The tutors will write a report on language circle activity. With it, tutors will be given 4 credits and a certificate.
While in Finland, would you like to have a possibility to interact easily with Finnish people outside your institution and studies? If so, one option is visiting a real Finnish school where you can experience a Finnish classroom by giving the students lectures as a visiting student.
There are still study exchange opportunities for Spring Semester 2018 and those can be applied for in 1-15.9.
The mystery path is about 4 km in length. There are 8 to 10 crosspoints along the path, where the City of Turku and different associations and organizations in Turku will present a range of cultural and everyday life services and activities.

For many years I was certain that our language is impossible to learn. Therefore, I was hoping that employers would take a step forward and stop demanding Finnish from their employees, in case the job could be done without knowing Finnish. I still agree that there are many jobs out there that do not require fluent Finnish skills, but I would challenge you to change your mind, like I did.
