Tsemppi is an organization that represents international students and researchers and their interests in higher education. We are open to all students and researchers in Finland who want to be part of an internationally-minded organization, but most of our members are from the University of Helsinki.

One of our main aims is to promote the interests of international students and researchers, and raise awareness of their needs and contributions at the University of Helsinki, the City of Helsinki and Finland in general. We also work as a channel for international students and researchers to get involved in Finnish society, as well as creating long-term social relations for internationally-minded people in higher education in Finland.

In hopes of meeting these goals, Tsemppi organizes a variety of events and activities each year. Tsemppi events are open to all members and their friends, and Tsemppi PhD activities are geared towards doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers in Helsinki.

So whether you’re new to Helsinki or are looking to meet new people, be sure to get in touch, and join us at one of our events!

Tsemppiä! (or “Good Luck” in Finnish…)
