FINT = Finns and internationals in Tampere

Note! ESN FINT is not connected to the Erasmus programme but is for ALL internationally minded students! :)

What is ESN FINT?

ESN FINT stands for the Erasmus Student Network, Finns and Internationals in Tampere, both actively involved. It is the local section of Erasmus Student Network (ESN) in the university of Tampere.

ESN FINT provides quality free-time activities for all exchange students, international degree students and local students.

Who are we for?

Any students who want to meet international students

We want to facilitate all intercultural communication in our University and in Tampere!

Homecoming students

The students who are returning from exchange are being supported in reintegration process in their home countries by keeping contact with an international environment. Many local sections are set up by former exchange students, often because they have had good experiences from their exchange period or because they felt a lack of help during their exchange. They also understand better the issues and challenges in a foreign environment.

Exchange students

Current exchange students often face problems (and feel abandoned) in their new environments. Therefore ESN offers help in academic, social and practical integration process. This is mainly done through activities which include cultural and social events such as trips, movie nights, language groups etc., and last but not least, parties.

International degree students

At the Uni, we also have many students who stay here for a longer period to get a degree. For them, ESN offers an environment to meet locals AND also other foreigners.

ESN FINT suomeksi

FINT järjestää ohjelmaa ja tapahtumia Tampereen yliopiston kansainvälisille opiskelijoille, eli niin vaihtareille kuin kaikille muillekin kiinnostuneille. Haluamme edistää kansainvälisyyttä yliopistossa! Järjestämme monenlaisia tapahtumia ja ne on suunnattu KAIKILLE opiskelijoille, jotka haluavat viettää aikaa kansainvälisessä seurassa. Pääkielemme on luonnollisesti englanti, mutta jäsenistössämme (ja hallituksessa!) on myös paljon suomalaisia. Kielitaitoa ei kannata pitää millään tapaa rajoittavana tekijänä, sillä taitotasoja on monia ja silti kaikki voivat nauttia tapahtumista! :D Ja toki myös muiden kielten käyttäminen on enemmän kuin sallittua!
