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?
Our great committee has all kinds of plans for the upcoming year of 20/21, such as socials* and sober socials*, possible trips and activities! We also want to bring the finnish university culture a bit closer to Worcester so Sitsit and Approt are on the list of socials we definitely want to do!
(*following the University guidance due to Covid-19)
If you have any questions or inquiries, don't hesitate to contact any of our committee members!

Hello! I’m Emilia, a second-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.
My personal Finnish nightmare: “When you slip and someone sees it and it gets even worse when they come and ask if you’re hurt”.
