International affairs

International affairs holds in the tutoring of foreign students and arranging international events. Together with the professionals of the UAS we aim to improve the wellbeing of foreign students in their everyday life and that their studies go fluently.

You can improve your own language skills just by chatting with other students, or taking part to the student events where you can meet all kinds of speakers. It is useful and fun at the same time!

Student culture and sports

Student Union arranges different kinds of events and activities, which are meant to bring a little change in everyday life and provide a chance to meet other students. Annual freshmen race, for example, is an event that welcomes all the new students of Saimaa UAS to cities of Lappeenranta and Imatra, and to school of course!

Student Union also aims to encourage students to do sports and try different hobbies. In Lappeenranta students can use many sports facilities through SaLUT, which is a joint project of LUT and Saimaa UAS. More information about SaLUT and its possibilities from www.salut.fi/en. In Imatra, SaLUT negotiates benefits and discounts for students from various places you can do sports at.

Saimaa UAS students can also join in the clubs of LTKY: http://ltky.fi/clubs/?lang=en

Tutoring

Tutoring is key to help freshmen get acquainted with new school, studies, cities and their spare time activities. Tutors are usually older class students. Tutors work in cooperation with tutor teachers of their degree programs as well as other staff of the UAS. They communicate and work closely with Student Union’s Executive Board member responsible for tutoring, who coordinates and plans the tutoring together with Student Union’s Member Services Secretary.
