Students of the University of Eastern Finland can apply to participate in the network’s activities and study at universities belonging to YUFE. As a student, you have the opportunity to study both virtually and physically on an exchange at one of the network’s partner universities. You can take courses from all partner universities at the same time. After completing your YUFE Student Journey, you will receive a certificate showing all your studies and other activities in the network.
Applying for and participating in the YUFE programme is possible at all degree levels. You can apply once you have completed at least one academic year of you bachelor’s level studies. First-year students can apply in the spring semester to start in autumn. Master’s and PhD-level students can apply already at the beginning of their studies.
The requirement is at least B2-level English. The YUFE network typically organises its own application round at the beginning of the autumn and spring semesters. Students of the University of Eastern Finland can apply for the YUFE Student Journey programme on the network’s website during the application period.
As a YUFE student, you can apply for a physical exchange during the University of Eastern Finland’s annual application rounds. Physical exchange to member universities of the network is financed with the Erasmus+mobility grant.

You can participate in the work of various organisations through the YUFE Volunteering programme, both in your hometown and during your student exchange at a YUFE partner university. At several YUFE universities, remote volunteering is also possible.
In Finland and elsewhere in Europe, the so-called the work of the third sector is rapidly professionalising, and offers specialist jobs to an increasingly large number of university graduates. By participating in YUFE Volunteering, you can increase your skills and acquire useful working life skills and connections, just like in any internship. There are already several YUFE Volunteering opportunities, and their number is constantly increasing.
Check out the opportunities at the YUFE Virtual Campus, and if you cannot find anything that suits you, contact Marko Pietila, the coordinator of international affairs responsible for YUFE Volunteering, at email@example.com. For participating in volunteer activities, you can earn the YUFE Civic Star, which can be used to demonstrate competences and activities to, for example, an employer.
In addition to studies, volunteering work and other activities, you can get involved in YUFE activities as a student representative. Application for new student representatives to the YUFE Student Forum will be open in spring.
