sTYYlish May Day 100 is here!

May Day, it's making a comeback!

Get your mead brewing, find your student caps from the dusty shelves, sew all your patches, fetch you picnic blankets from the summer storage... It's time for May Day to rise from the ashes and spread its wings to its former glory. Come witness the May Day comeback on 30.4.-1.5.!

Suggest the best teacher and the best course of the year 2022!

Good teaching and counselling are core tasks of the University. We are looking for candidates of highly qualified teaching and well-operating courses of 2021-2022. The proposals coming from students and colleagues are a great way to show appreciation for the proposed candidates.

The Teacher of the Year has been selected since 1994 and the Course of the Year since 2006. With the chosen candidates we can promote the importance of good teaching and guidance in the community.

The final decision will be made by the Rector of the University of Turku and the Chairman of the Board of TYY based on the suggestions by the Teaching and Learning Council of the University of Turku and the Student Union.

Teacher of the Year and the Course of the Year will be declared in the opening of the academic year of the University of Turku. The winners will be rewarded with prize.
