International

Media ry is the registered association of everyone studying Media and Communication Studies at University of Helsinki. The association is managed by a student board selected annually in December. Despite the board, anyone can participate in our events without an official position.

One of our main goals is to oversee that the students’ interests are taken into account in the faculty decision-making – we want to make sure our voice is heard. Another important task we are committed to is ensuring that our students enjoy the student life to the fullest by organizing diverse activities, like student parties and get-togethers, and visits to cultural events.

We also strive to create and maintain relations to the working life and other associations. Various excursions to different kinds of organizations and institutions are held every year. We have visited for example various communications agencies, magazines and tv channels.

Internationality is an important theme for us. We want to make sure that our exchange students and international students have a great stay with us and feel that their thoughts and concerns are heard.

Internationality is improved also by traveling: Media ry makes a journey abroad each year. Smaller trips are made also within Finland, like our traditional trip to a summer cottage in September or early October.

We welcome you with open arms: we hope to see you at one of our events!

If you have any questions, hopes or ideas you’d like to share with us regarding our student association’s activities, don’t hesitate to contact us! You can indicate your message to any member of our board (hallitus in Finnish).
