Researchers, teachers and academic experts – welcome to the Union!

The Finnish Union of University Researchers and Teachers (FUURT) is a professional organisation and trade union for researchers, teachers and other academic experts at universities and research institutions. FUURT is the right union for all university researchers and teachers regardless of their career stage.

You can join the Finnish Union of University Researchers and Teachers through one of its many member associations.

You can complete an online membership application here.

With the same application you apply to become a member of FUURT, one of our member associations and the Teachers’ unemployment fund. The board of the member association in question decides on its new members and notifies them in writing of the decision.

Membership officially begins, at the earliest, on the date when the written application for membership is submitted. You can also choose a date when you wish your membership to begin. Please note, however, that you cannot join retroactively. Please take notice also about our  Membership fees  and  Membership benefits.
