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, a very affordable annual trip abroad and plenty of parties, each greater than the last. (Praxis has a sturdy reputation of organizing the best parties at UEF). Four times a year Praxis also publishes its own ”magazine”, Pragma.
Please note! For international students both the membership fee and activity fee are optional! If you wish to join Praxis without paying the fee, you can do so by contacting the chairperson.
