Welcome to Löyly 2020!
Löyly is a work life event for international students and alumni in Oulu. Every year approximately 300 new international degree students begin their studies at the university and the university of applied sciences of Oulu. However 40 % of them leave Finland within the first year after graduation mostly due to residence permit criteria, which place a lot of pressure on finding a job.
Löyly aims to help by providing useful tips, advice and information in a form of inspiring speeches, insightful panel discussion, workshops and more. In Löyly 2020 our main speaker will be Joel Willans, the author behind famous Very Finnish Problems. This year Löyly brings students and employers together by cooperating with the career day Pestipäivät. At Pestipäivät employers that don’t require Finnish skills at work, but enable working in English will be wearing “We Speak English!” pins.
The event is free of charge and also non-international students and alumni are welcome. Löyly takes place in Tellus at Linnanmaa Campus of university of Oulu. The day part of Löyly lasts from 9 to 16 and we offer a little something to eat for the participants of workshops. There will also be a free bus ride from Kotkantie and Kontinkangas campuses to Linnanmaa.
After the day part is over we welcome you to join us at more relaxed After Löyly event at 18.00 in Reykjavik, Technopolis. In addition to a large sauna and amazing view over Oulu there will be something to eat and drink and music. You don’t even need your own towel. Just bring yourself and enjoy the evening by getting to know to other attendees!
