Kummi Family Programme

The 2019-2020 Kummi Family Programme is now open for applications! The application period closes on 10th September.

Since its inception in 1995, the Kummi Family Program has connected the university's international students with local families. The program grants participants an enriching intercultural experience by affording them the opportunity to spend time together and engage in various activities. The program runs from September to May and is a full-year commitment open to international students who will be in Oulu for the 2019-2020 academic year.

We have tried to reach all families who have participated in the programme previously. If you have not heard from us and wish to participate in the 2019-2020 round, please fill out a new application.

Applications for the 2019-2020 Kummi Family Programme are now open and will close on 10th September 2019. If you are a resident of the Oulu region and would like to apply as a kummi family, please fill out the kummi family application form. If you are an incoming or existing international student of the university who has not participated in the programme previously, please fill out the student application form.
