What are subject associations?
Subject associations are student organizations that look after the needs of the students of
their respective study programme. Each Finnish study programme in the University of
Jyväskylä has its own subject association. There are approximately 40 subject associations in total. You can differentiate members of different subject associations by the colour of their overalls. Members of Emile (Education and Adult Education students) have orange overalls.
