Kauppakadun Appro in English

Kauppakadun Appro

The Event

Kauppakadun Appro is one of the largest student events in Finland in which participating students have a chance to graduate by partying hard!

Every participant will receive a map and a diploma ('study record'). The diploma is for collecting stamps ('credits') by visiting and having a drink in different downtown bars and restaurants which are shown on the map. There’s a free entrance to all of the participating bars, and the drinks have a fixed, reduced price everywhere.

This study tour will culminate in the after party held in Paviljonki, Jyväskylä Congress Centre. After completing the degree and before entering Paviljonki, participants need to have their 'study records' evaluated and they will receive a badge upon successful completion of their studies.
