Social programme

The LUT Summer School involves more than mere classroom work. To add to your learning experience and help you meet other students, the LUT Summer School organises an action-packed social programme.

Welcome and farewell receptions will be arranged, where you can meet other students as well as your professors. We will also organise many smaller events, ranging from Finnish sauna and barbeque evenings to a cruise on Lake Saimaa.


  • Welcome and farewell dinners
  • Traditional Finnish sauna evenings with different themes (Finnish culture, International night)
  • Nightclubbing
  • Company presentations (e.g. KONE)
  • Cruise on lake Saimaa
  • Trip to St. Petersburg (separately financed by students)

The LUT Summer School reserves the right to change or modify the schedules of events.
