The registered association IVSA Finland was founded on Monday November 30, 2009.
The aim of IVSA Finland is to make it possible for Finnish veterinary students to meet foreign people and visit foreign universities. We also hope to aid in advancing veterinary medicine and veterinary degrees by organizing events that bring vet students together to exchange knowledge, skills and ideas.
We arrange local events for Finnish students and exchange students of the local faculty, for example exchange information nights, surgical sewing nights and general discussions on current topics in veterinary medicine. IVSA Finland has a Facebook group in which we inform our local members about forthcoming local and international events and other news about the chapter. Information about our local events is mostly in Finnish, but we try to inform exchange students in English as well.
We organize one group exchange per year, usually in the spring.
Past group exchanges:
2020 Edinburgh, Scotland
2019 Pristhina, Kosovo
2018 Budapest, Hungary
2017 Uppsala, Sweden
2016 Košice, Slovakia
2015 Nantes, France
2014 Edinburgh, Scotland
2013 Lublin, Poland
2012 Olsztyn, Poland
2011 Hannover, Germany
If you are a foreign student interested in individual exchange or gaining work experience in Finland and a member of IVSA, contact us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try our best to help you. We also arrange events for exchange students in our faculty.
