Learn more about the world, plan your future exchange studies, and have fun at this year's Festival of Cultures and Study Abroad Fair!

One of the most international events in Oulu is back!

Taking place on the 9th of November, 10:00-14:00 (10am-2pm), the event brings our students and staff together to represent their various cultures to the public. Additionally, our exchange students and guests also get the chance to represent their home universities. You can attend performances, cultural presentations, workshops, enjoy food tasting sessions, and much more!​ This year, there is a special programme of workshops, specifically for our teachers and educators, with themes concerning language awareness and diversity, equality, and inclusion.

This year the event is gamified; every event participant will get a personal event pass inspiring you to experience the event to the fullest! The exclusive event patch can be picked up immediately after visiting five cultural stalls and/or workshops! (Please note that the number of patches is limited).

For anyone interested in representing their cultures and/or home universities: Registration is open on Webropol. Sign up before October 11th at 4 p.m. at the latest.

For event visitors: Mark your calendars today and join us on this unique, engaging journey across dozens of cultures from all around the world on November 9! The event starts at 10 am in the central lobby of the University of Oulu’s Linnanmaa campus.
