More information

Membership is renewed every calendar year at the beginning of each year. Tivia sends an annual invoice for membership.

Local membership

You can also become a local member of Blanko. Learn more about local membership here. However, to get the most out of it, we recommend joining Tivia, and through it Blanko. Membership is valid as soon as the Board has approved your application at its meeting.

Unions & unemployment funds

You should join the union immediately in the first year of study. At the same time, it is worth joining the unemployment fund so that you can accumulate months from the first summer job. Any job will garner money! Blanko cooperates with TEK (Academic of Technology) and recommends all its members to join TEK for free. It is possible to join KOKO unemployment fund through TEK.
