Social Programme


Your stay will not just be studying, even though it can be fun, too. You can enjoy the eastern Finnish nature on your leisure time. Why not try out, for example, canoeing on the river or lake, play beach volley, go Nordic walking in the forest, take a sauna and go swimming in our beautiful lakes? Or you can just relax with your fellow students on the numerous terraces and cafeterias around our campus cities.

We hope you enjoy your stay in Joensuu and Kuopio. That’s why we will also organise some guided social programme during the weeks and the weekend.  The activities will mostly be included in your course fee, but some of them may have a small participation fee.


The social programme for the UEF Summer School 2019 has been set and confirmed. You can see the details here:
