METKA Membership

As a Metropolia student, METKA is always on your side. It is our job to advocate, help and support in all things concerning student rights.

Metropolia UAS is the biggest university of applied sciences in Finland, with around 17 000 students. To be able to be and advocate everywhere it is needed, METKA sells memberships to fund the daily work.

Become a part of the official Metropolia student community!

By joining METKA, you will directly support the important work that the student parliament, board, student representatives and all other student advocates are doing for the whole community.

Did you know that in Metropolia, you do not have to be a student union member to get a student card? METKA was the first student union in Finland to bring the student card available to all students, without the membership requirement.

Thank you for making our work possible.

What do I get by paying the membership fee?

Paying the membership fee does not leave you empty-handed. We want to make sure that you get a good value out of your membership fee as well.
