Student Union Council Elections 2021
In the elections for the Student Union Council on 27 October – 3 November 2021, 41 representatives will be chosen among the eligible members of the TYY to the Council of the Student Union of the University of Turku.
The new Student Union Council will start its two-year term in January 2022. The Council is the highest decision-making authority in the Student Union. It decides on what the Student Union will do in each of the two years while in office. It uses this power by determining how much money will be used and for what purposes.
In other words, the Student Union Council approves the annual budget and decides what the Student Union will focus on during the council's term. During the year, the Student Union Council usually convenes once a month (excluding summer months).

We are making changes to our mailing lists
Did you get this newsletter via tyy-exchangestudents or tyy-degreestudents mailing list? We are closing down both lists and use the mailing list tyy-international for now on. If you are not sure which list you are on, you can see the name of the list in this email’s title field.
If you are not yet on the tyy-international mailing list, you can join that list from this link. After September we will send TYY’s newsletter only to that list.
tyy-international is a general mailing list for all the international students who study at the University of Turku. Through this list, we keep you up to date on current issues that concern students, inform you about the events at the campus and in Turku in general and also distribute information about for example job offers or internships, language studies, culture and sports opportunities.
Did you know that CampusSport organizes several tournaments and competitions during the academic year? The next competitions coming up are
disc golf, padel and bubble football. There is a separate fee for each tournament and also those who haven’t paid CampusSport’s sports fee can participate. Anyone can put a team together, as long as you are a student or a staff member in one of the universities in Turku.
More information on CampusSport’s website: https://www.campussport.fi/en/competitions-in-the-beginning-of-october/
When attending to an event remember the hygiene instructions and safe distances. Wear a facemask if needed. Never attend to an event if you are sick.
