Membership of the Student Union in the academic year 2020-2021

If you are studying a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree at the Tampere University, you become a student union’s member when you enroll as present at the university. The membership fee for Bachelor’s and Master’s degree students is 60 euros for the entire academic year or 30 euros for one semester (autum 2020 or spring 2021). As a member of the student union you are entitled to TREY’s membership services as well as to order a student card, so the membership is highly recommended also for exchange students. At the autumn 2020 the FSHS fee (28,5 e) was included in the membership fee. Starting from spring 2021 FSHS fee is paid to Kela and the FSHS fee is mandatory for all degree students registered as present. Read more on FSHS services on the Healthcare -subsite.

For doctoral students the membership is voluntary. Their membership fee is 30 euros for one academic year or 15 euros for one semester (autumn 2020 or spring 2021).

Students starting their studies in autumn 2020 can order the student card starting 4 August, if they have registered as present.

How to join the Student Union?

The Bachelor’s and Master’s degree students join TREY with their annual registration at the university. First activate your user ID on the University’s website.

  1. All students must register for each academic year, either as present or absent. When you register as present, you also have to pay the student union’s membership fee.
  2. Registration for the academic year 2019-2020 starts on 1 August 2019. You need to register for both autumn and spring terms by 3 September 2020. Exchange students and new students in the degree programmes in English need to register at Tampere University in person. Exception: Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, all new students in the degree programmes in English have received the payment information for the student union via email and can make an electronic identification for the registration.

  3. We highly recommend that you complete your registration between 12 August and 18 August 2020. We will inform about the exact registration times as soon as possible.

  5. When you have registered as present, you may use all the electronic services for students and enroll in courses, including cross-institutional studies at Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences.
  6. Please note that students who register as absent cannot take courses and may use the electronic services to limited extent only. In addition your absence may reduce the time available for completion of the degree.
  7. In case you want to amend your registration or you encounter problems, please contact Student Affairs Office.
  8. After paying the student union’s membership fee and registrating as present, new students or exchange students may order their student card online.
