At the end of the first teaching period, all first-year Bachelor’s students at the University of Helsinki have something in common: knowing what it’s like to study in the new degree programmes. The number of application options in last spring’s joint application procedure went down to 63 from the previous year’s 102. For example, the four Bachelor’s programmes at the Faculty of Social Sciences contain a total of 11 disciplines. Creating such extensive combinations has been challenging for the teaching staff, but Benjamin Pitkänen, a student of the Bachelor’s Programme in Society and Change feels that their work has been successful. “So far the different topics have been well balanced. It’s also nice that the range and perspectives of the topics are broader than just one discipline could offer,” he says.
Hate speech, climate change, polarization. How do schools react to societal change? Studies in democratic citizenship and human rights provide teachers with the skills required to discuss such questions. A pilot course on the topic was commended by teacher students at the University of Helsinki.
Public IT systems should be procured in smaller components, while the use of current systems should not be discontinued at once. Three main problems inherent in public information system procurement were identified in a study.

The online courses on introduction to climate change and data security that started last year will continue this year. The Climate.now package was born out of a need for a generation of climate experts that will understand the basics of climate change and can utilise this knowledge within their own field. The course Cyber Security Base with F-Secure on data security started in collaboration between the Department of Computer Science at the university and F-Secure for the second time is a similar sign of the times. Its objective is to support employment in the field of data security. Join the MOOCs!

The Baltic Sea has been in a bad condition for a very long time. With the help of science, a new course of development has been set for the sea with gradual improvements in its state. The Tvärminne Zoological Station is the largest research centre focused on coastal ecology in the Baltic Sea. Without private donations, marine research at Tvärminne would not be the best in the field. The donations have allowed even more researchers to stay through the year at the station, the development of an extensive online measurement network and added visibility to the research. By donating to science, you are helping the University of Helsinki build a more sustainable future through research. Make a donation that makes difference: https://www.helsinki.fi/en/giving-day

The DNA repair mechanism discovered by recent Nobel laureate Paul Modrich is already in use at the University of Helsinki. Minna Nyström, professor in epigenetics and genetics at the Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences, used it as the basis for a diagnostic test, patented it, and is now encouraging other researchers to embrace entrepreneurship. "I enjoy mentoring fledgling research entrepreneurs, since I believe that someone like me who learned everything the hard way can help those who are coming up next," Nyström says.
