New year begins at Study in Turku fair!
The Study in Turku fair welcomes new and old students to Turku, the city of students.
The fair is celebrating a jubilee year, which is why the fair will include special programmes throughout the day. The first visitors will receive a unique badge for their overalls.
Visit the fair and learn more about the services offered by the City of Turku, student benefits, local student and hobby associations as well as companies. More than 70 exhibitors will be in attendance to share their stories and tips. You can get yourself a bus card or a library card for example at the fair.
The City of Turku is organising the fair for new students for the 20th time together with local institutes of higher education.
