Subject and faculty associations

Subject and faculty associations

Subject associations are associations founded by students of one or more subject that organize activities for their members. They also act as supervisors of interest and representatives in their own department or faculty. In their faculty, a subject association can have their say in e.g. planning the curriculum, improving the study environment and upholding a positive atmosphere.

Please note that some of the associations currently operate (mainly) in Finnish, but this doesn’t mean you wouldn’t be welcome to join them. If there’s an association you find interesting, please don’t hesitate to contact them!
