ExpREES programme organises every academic year at least one excursion into the REE-area. The aim of the excursions is to deeper students knowledge of the REE-area. The excursions include visits to the universities, NGO's, international organizations, companies etc. Students who will participate the excursion, will take care of the organizing the programme of the excursion.
Students organizing the practicalities (ie. visits, flights) for the excursion group and writing a short report after the excursion, provides them with 2-5 credits. The amount of credits depends on the activity of each student for the arranging of the common programme on the excursion.
ExpREES programme supports excursions. The deductible expenses of the excursion depend on the destination. ExpREES students can participate in excursions also without support and cover costs by themselves.
Students are always welcome to suggest destinations for next excursion. ExpREES will inform students on up-coming excursions through ai-verkko mailing list. Priority is given to those students who did not attend an excursion during previous year. Students can always attend excursions at their own expense.
