Traditional Study in Turku fair is arranged yearly at the start of the autumn semester. This year the fair was held at the Great Old Square (Vanha Suurtori) on 26 August.
In Finland each university and UAS has its own student union. The membership of a student union is compulsory for all Finnish undergraduate students - and for those international students who are studying for a Finnish degree. It is possible for the exchange students to join a student union, too. The membership entitles to a variety of benefits, for example student health care and several student discounts.
