Do you want to get to know Finnish people and culture? If you said yes, Friendship Program would be perfect for you!

University chaplains Kaisa Iso-Herttua and Tiina Kaaresvirta are looking for foreign students and Finnish, singles or families, join the Friends Program. The aim is to bring people together, because friendship is precious.

"Life is better with friends! With a friend, life is lighter and more fun! With a Finnish friend, you will have an access to Finnish lifestyle, culture and get inside into Finland and Finnish mindset. You and your Finnish friend decide, what kind of activities you will have together", says Kaaresvirta. They prefer normal, everyday activities such as having coffee together, going to nature.

The Program starts in the autumn of 2019. We will organize matches via this questionnaire based on your interests and hopes. The Programme provides you a couple of meetings with Finnish friends and the leaders, the rest is up to you and your friend. This questionnaire is not meant to be for looking for a romantical date. This Programme is meant for finding new friends.
