Class & university

Think Company (Tiedekulma, Yliopistonkatu 4, 2nd floor), Monday, November 19, 2018 at 5 pm - 6:30 pm

Even in Finland, the eduction of the parents often dictates the choices the child makes in regard to their education, and a student from a working class family often feels like an outsider in academia. Class & university is an open discussion among students and experts on how people from the working class end up in a university, and what it feels like to study in a university.

Discussing the topic at the event are students of the University of Helsinki with personal experience of the matter, psychotherapist, social science researcher Katriina Järvinen, who is well-versed in the subject, and PhD researcher Susanna Mikkonen from Tampere.

The event is in Finnish. Admission is free and the venue is accessible.
