Who can join Karavaani?

Karavaani is the association for those who study Asian, African, or Middle-Eastern cultures or languages, but everyone interested in these topics is welcome to join us! The only limitation is that at least half of our members have to be members of HYY (Student Union of the University of Helsinki).

We warmly welcome all exchange students and other people to our events!


What do we offer?

We have all kinds of events, parties, get-togethers, excursions and work-related events. If you’re looking for people to practice your Finnish with, we can definitely do that too. Karavaani also offers help when its needed. If you get bullied, have an issue with a teacher or simply don’t know where your lecture is, we can help you sort things out.

How do I get information about events?

Karavaani sends email to our email list all the time about events that are coming up. By subscribing to the email list you also get emails about courses and meetings that might benefit your studies. About half of the messages will be in Finnish, though.

We are also fairly active on Facebook, so you can check us out there too! Karavaani’s Facebook page.
