Hey there, and welcome to study in Finland! We are Students of Political Science, known as VOO. The winter is coming and it’s going to be long and dark and cold, but so are our yearly activities that will make the best of your exchange! There’s something for everyone and we would just love to have you at our events. The Finnish student life is rich with the most extraordinary traditions. So make sure you don’t miss sitsit, an academic dinner party with singing and drinking, or our epic yearly conquest cruise to Stockholm. Sports activities are of course there too. We also make sure your voice is heard at the faculty, so our student officers are happy to answer questions regarding your studies. Or if you have an idea, just let any of our board members know it so that we can realize it together! Don’t hesitate to contact us whenever something comes up. Tutors will also also support you to get going with the daily campus life.
Congrats on your choice to study in Helsinki! Let the exchange and life start!
