Greetings from the Executive Director Hi you! A warm welcome to Turku School of Economics. We at The Association of Economics students in Turku are thrilled to have you here.

Our very own student association, commonly

known as TuKY is founded to monitor and ensure

the well-being of the student body of our school.

Once again – welcome (or how we say it in Finnish, TERVETULOA!)

And of course to offer the best student events you’ll attend to while studying here in Turku!

TuKY (The Association of Economics Students

in Turku) is an association with traditional roots all the way from 1950. We have our office located at the heart of TSE, right next to the student

lunch place Monttu. You can come over during office hours with any issue or problem – we will

solve it together. The office is also my work place

and the spot where you can rent a locker from the hall or buy your royal blue student overalls,

which are the pride and glory of every TuKY student. Renting a locker costs 20 €, from which you

will get 10 € back when returning the key. Please bring cash with you if possible.

I hope with all my heart that you will spend

an unforgettable time here with us at TSE and Turku. I truly believe you have made an excellent

choice by picking Turku for your studying city – I

What is Turun KY?

land and it has been serving alcoholic beverages continuously

when a group of students gathered together to discuss star-

Economics Students in Turku (Turun kauppakorkea-

koulun ylioppilaskunta), was founded on 12.10.1950

ting up a student association. The symbol for the student as-

sociation and the current institution is compounded of the snake wand of Mercury, the god of merchandise,

and a gothic A-letter in the escutcheon of Turku

city. Turun KY got its own flag in 1953 and a symbol for graduation cap in 1966. The students of Turku School of Economics still use these same symbols, which differ from the symbols of University of Turku.

In the end of the 1950s began the tradition of

calling the freshmen students of TSE 'bunnies' (puput). In the fall of 1953 the student associati-

kinkatu 6 in 1984. The original Parkki was deconstructed in

the beginning of 2000s because of its poor shape. The new Parkki was finally completed in 2006.

Turku School of Economics and University of

Turku have had a couple discussions about mer-

ging over the years. The final fusion took place

in the end of 2010, at which time the student associations of TSE and UTU also merged. It was

named the Student Union of University of Turku (TYY).

After this, Turun KY has continued its activity

ylioppilaat ry, even though its most important mission is still

cated to Rehtorinpellonkatu when TSE moved to its current

ciations because of our long-standing traditions and our team

building in Aurakatu. The room was named Monttu (pit hole) because of its little deserted appearance. Monttu was relo-

location in 1959. Monttu is one of the oldest nightclubs in Fin-

to focus on the well-being and promotion of interests of its

members. Nevertheless, we separate from other student assospirit, which has evolved over the decades to its current glory.


FAQ - FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS do I get started with school? Where 1. How can I get help if needed?

The orientation day gets you started with everyt-

hing. Every exchange student is placed in a group with a tutor that helps with everything. Please, feel

free to ask anything from the tutors since they are here just for you. And of course you can always ask help from anyone around you!

2.How do I register for courses and exams?

The first registration occurs at the Student Affairs

Office (opintotoimisto). After that you will register for courses and exams at nettiopsu.utu.fi. As you register for courses you should be aware when the registration begins since some courses (mostly

languages) fill up quickly. Some of the exams are completed at a computer classroom and registra-

tion for these exams occurs at tenttis.utu.fi. The registration for exams should be done one week

before the exam. If you somehow forget to register, contact the teacher if he/she’ll still allow you to do the exam. At nettiopsu.utu.fi you ́ll also find your grades for completed studies.

3.

Are there any other websites that I should be aware of?

You will receive a username and a password for

nettiopsu and other websites that are linked to our school. Username and password are the same on each site. Another mentionable site is mail.utu.

fi which is the official e-mail of the university – use it to contact the teachers. You should join mailing

lists to receive information about events. The most important ones are active@utu.fi and CIA-TuKY@

utu.fi. Every event is also published on Facebook.

It’s also worth joining ESN Turku. Every event of our school is found on turunky.fi/jasenille/tapahtumakalenteri.

by asking from the reception of the library. Also summaries of some courses are sold at Wanha Narikka for student friendly prices.

5.What if I get ill?

There's students’ health care at Kirkkotie 13.

It's called YTHS and it ́s the most affordable option for students. Usually, there’s no need for a certificate of illness, but a few classes require

attendace so contact your teacher in case your absence limits are crossed.

Turku is a very nice place but of course there is much more to see. From Turku it ́s easy to take a cruise to Stockholm and at the same time you

What should I know about Finnish people?

Finns do like to keep their own space especially in public places and there isn’t much small talk,

so don ́t be surprised if your neighbour or the person who sits next to you on a bus doesn’t necessarily talk to you. Finns are generally

known as honest people so if you set up a mee-

The most important discounts are lunch discount (for 2,60€) and public transportation discounts (get your student bus pass at Aurakatu 5). Discounts for students are granted in many

places so student card is worth carrying around.

7.

Where do students get together?

It depends on what you are planning to do. At our school Merca is the place to hang out and

chat with people. Parkki is our detached house near school and almost every event takes place there. Turku is a very compact city and as more

than 20% of its people are students, you can

see them everywhere. One of the best places to

hang out is the side of Aura-river and the riverboats and coffee shops next to it especially in

10. What is the thing with overalls?

Only the best thing at University. Every faculty

has its own color and also there are differen-

ces in colors between cities. So you can always recognize who are from the same school as

you and that ́s also a great way to start a con-

versation. We also collect these badges from almost every event we attend so you can com-

pare them with others and see who have been at the same events as you. Special thing about

the overalls is that people really wear them and they are supposed to be worn at every event

that has participants from other faculties as

well. Overalls are also something to have as a souvenir.

our properties Where the magic happens Over 30-year-old Parkki is TuKY’s very own club house just a minute away from the

TSE (Parkinkatu 6). All sorts of parties and events are held at Parkki all year around. Even though the detached house is also rented for private events, it is mostly used by the students of TSE. Every club from our school can freely book Parkki for their events

and it is free for them. I bet you are going to spend many nights in this building during

your exchange – either partying all night downstairs or enjoying good company and sauna upstairs.

Monttu is the place where you are going to spend the most memorable moments of

your stay in the TSE. It is not only a school restaurant but also our very own bar where

some of the biggest parties are thrown. This bar on the ground floor of our school helps you when you get thirsty and offers you student price beverages in every party – but remember to bring some cash with you since the bar doesn’t accept your parents’ credit card or other payment options. There are going to be parties all year around so remember to show up! We have the best mood and colour lights!
