Welcome to the official SU page of the Finnish Society! Our aim is to provide support and new contacts for the old and the new members of the society, and we want to connect finnish students and those who are interested in finnish culture and/or language in the University of Worcester. It doesn't matter if you're finnish or not, everyone's welcomed to join!
What you might be expecting when you join the society?
Joining the society is a quick way to connect with other students, finnish and non-finnish, and we make sure everyone feels comfortable and welcomed. If you're a finnish student in UoW, we promise you your homesickness will be eased! If you're a non-finnish student, we'll promise to teach you all about finnish culture and language!
What will we do as a society?
For 21/22 we try to focus on in-person meetings, socials and sober-socials, as much as possible since last year left many students without proper social life. We'll also bring the finnish university culture a bit closer to Worcester so Sitsit* and Approt* are on the list of socials we'll definitely do! Arrangements of the events will be done by following the government guidance as well as information from our SU.
For more information about events and dates see our event page!

If you have any questions or inquiries, don't hesitate to contact any of our committee members!

Hello! I’m Emilia, a third-year Psychology student. I’m originally from Turku, Finland, and studying here has been a wonderful experience. My role in the Finnish society is to plan our socials and make them as fun as possible - and most importantly, get you familiar with the Finnish culture if you aren’t already!
