Student card tag for the academic year

You can only collect the student card tag for the academic year from the student union that issued your student card. The year tag can’t be sent by mail, and it can only be attached to the student card. If you need to pick up the year tag while our services office is closed, please contact our member services: [email protected] .

We also recommend everyone to download Frank App to their phone and launch a free digital student card. For students attending only in the spring of 2021, the card will start working at the beginning of the academic term, i.e. in January.

The academic year tag can only be obtained from the student union whose student card the member has. AYY's service office therefore only issues a year tag to AYY's student card. AYY's student card also includes student cards previously issued by the Student Union of the Helsinki School of Economics (KY), the Student Union of the University of Art and Design (TOKYO) and the Student Union of the Helsinki University of Technology (TKY).
