In English

Praxis is the subject association of the students of philosophy, sociology and social policy at the University of Eastern Finland. Joining the subject association is not compulsory, but still highly recommended.

By active participation in the subject association activities you have the opportunity to make new friends, receive information on important issues having to do with your studies and influence what the future of the University of Eastern Finland looks like.

Praxis offers a variety of sporting activities, various events and plenty of parties, each greater than the last. Praxis has a sturdy reputation of organising the best parties in UEF. Praxis also publishes its own blog, Pragma, which can be found as one part of this website.


Please note! For exchange students both the membership fee and activity fee are not required for the first semester. However, if an exchange student studies in UEF for the whole academic year or longer, membership or activity fee are required after the first free semester.
