TYY has over a hundred different sub-organisations. There are subject associations, student nations and various other organisations.

All of the sub-organisations are independently registered organisations. The status of the organisations at TYY is regulated by the Regulation on sub-organisations and financial support.

TYY offers various services to its sub-organisations. This includes, for example, counselling services, financial support, training and items and space for rent. Hopefully you will find the information you need to questions on organisations on these pages. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact the actors in the student organisation sector.

Sub-organisation declaration form

TYY sub-organisations must annually fill out the declaration form. The form must be submitted to the Specialist in Student Organisations by the end of December.

Applying for sub-organisation status

An organisation, whose majority of members are TYY members, can apply for sub-organisation status. The Executive Board can for special pressing reasons grant sub-organisation status to an organisation whose TYY members come to under one half.

The activities of a sub-organisation must be aimed at the Student Union members and promote their psychological or social objectives. The sub-organisations must take the individual’s rights and goals concerning TYY equality into consideration in all its activities.

The sub-organisation must be registered or be in the process of getting registered. The sub-organisations have the right to apply for TYY activity and project support, use info columns in Turku Student Newspaper and utilise services TYY offers its sub-organisations. An organisation may apply for activity support at the beginning of next calendar year after registration as a TYY sub-organisation.
