[gallery ids="25591,25595,25598"] It’s the end of the semester and it’s time to study for the exams. Everyone has its own method to study, but if there is one thing we all have in common is that we need somewhere where we can actually study.

Studying in a new place is always exciting and stressful as well. Along with all the new people and places it offers, we will have to acclimatize ourselves with the local culture, systems, food, mode of travel and the list goes on.. As every international student...

New academic year is about to start and I guess that new students have more and more questions related to their first days in Turku. That’s why I decided to make this post which contains a variety of random information which I got from my tutor, and which my friend and I prepared for our degree tutees. Hope it will be helpful : )
Learning, Learning Environments and Educational Systems (LLEES) programme requires from students to complete an internship related to the field of education. My groupmate and friend, Bushra Shareef, kindly agreed to share her experience regarding her internship at Turku International School (TIS).
Do you have a habit to go to the library? Before coming to Finland for me it was definitely something not common as I associated it with a gloomy place with a specific smell of old dust. But Turku showed me libraries from another light. They are spacious, bright, colourful, and welcoming.
I assume that when students enter a university, there is a certain number of questions they need to solve quite urgently. One of such matters is the schedule of the courses you are going to attend. There are so many of them, and you feel so enthusiastic that you want to try everything which is impossible due to overlaps. At least that’s what I experienced during my first year in Turku : D All the elective courses sounded fascinating and it was a torture to choose some of them. When hearing about this «problem», my friend advised me to take «Multicultural Education». She characterised it as a «must have».  To be honest, it even exceeded my expectations.

Once my friend told me that by accident she found Zoological Museum of the University of Turku. To be honest it was a total surprise as I never heard about it. Today my friend and I visited it and I have a huge desire to...

When you live in Turku you can notice that generally people speak English on a really high level. Although you can easily survive here without Finnish or Swedish, I still believe that it’s good to learn the language of the country you live in. That’s why I decided to learn Finnish.
I assume that everyone who is accepted at the University is immediately contacted by an international officer of his or her faculty. At least that’s what happened in my case. And I would like to say that our international officer is truly amazing. I received an abundance of useful information thanks to her.
