SUB ry
Student organization for students of English philology

What is SUB?



SUB ry is the student organisation for students of English philology and translation at the University of Helsinki. Our job is to make academic life more enjoyable, both in the classroom and outside of it. SUB ry is entirely run by students, and being on the students' side and protecting their rights is one of our main tasks. We also find it important to try and make communication between the department and the students as smooth as possible. All students of English philology and translation are warmly welcome to join SUB, and we sincerely hope you do so right away!

SUB organizes many different types of student events, such as:

  • - the welcoming party for the freshmen
  • - game and movie nights
  • - trips to museums and theatres
  • - sports events
  • - excursions to different working-life related destinations
  • - academic dinner parties and other events
  • - band nights
  • - study groups to help with the more difficult courses

SUB is extremely active on Facebook and a lot of relevant information will be posted in our Facebook group as well as our page. SUB is involved in all sorts of activities, for example we own subgroups for sports, arts, second hand and an active movie club, gaming club (SUB Division) and arts crafts club. We also part of the football & futsal team of the Faculty of Arts'students Humanistit United, which anyone interested in football can join.
