The Science Student’s Association Matlu established an International Committee in December of 2019.
“The Committee is charged with the responsibility to promote the interests of international students in Kumpula. Our goal is to organise fun events for international and internationally-minded students. For example, we are currently planning an International Sitsit and International Hangouts.”
Our recent post about the gender distribution of students in the Faculty of Science (45% of women among new students) raised questions about the gender distribution of the staff. Per popular request: overall, the distribution is 29%/71% between women/men.
Fraction of women in major staff groups:
- Research and Teaching Assistants: 35% (78/144 female/male)
- Laboratory staff and Research Coordinators: 33% (31/62)
- PhD students: 31% (100/223)
- Postdocs: 26% (50/140)
- University Lecturers and Teachers: 32% (28/60)
- University Researchers: 22% (22/79)
- Assistant and Associate Professors: 32% (13/28)
- Professors and Research Directors: 16% (15/77)
Against some popular impressions, the Faculty of Science has the most balanced gender distribution among students in the whole University of Helsinki. In 2019, 45% of new students admitted to the BSc programmes of the faculty were women (314 out of 703). The Faculty of Science wins this competition with a clear margin: the next faculties, Law and Theology, both admitted 37% men. Continue reading
