In addition to degree studies, Viikki is home to active operators who offer a range of ways to, for example, develop skills in project management and collaboration. Networking takes place alongside working and learning together. Among other things, we have ViikkiAreena, an employment-oriented event run by students, where many have even found summer jobs.
Networking and learning also take place in connection with the activities of discipline-specific student associations, the heart of student culture. Discipline-specific associations and other organisations relating to student culture, including the musical theatre association Viikki Speksi, Viikki Brewing Society and Sisu International Sports United, provide students interested in culture, brewing or sports with a spectrum of hobby opportunities. Moreover, student culture should not be overlooked as a creator of community spirit in Viikki. Student culture also features in the background of many companies that originate in Viikki.
Taking part in Viikki activities is effortless for those living in the area. After lectures, no time is spent on travel, and nature is close by for leisure time activities. What is it like to live in Viikki? Explore students’ stories here.
