Educational affairs advocacy (or kopo in short in Finnish) covers issues concerning studying, education, the student’s legal protection, as well as the university and its administration. Educational affairs concern every single student’s daily life at Tampere University.

Educational affairs cover the following advocacy tasks:

  • Training and coordinating the operations of the student representatives
  • Being familiar with the laws, regulations and guidelines that concern students and defending the rights granted in them.
  • National and local influencing together with Tamko and SYL.

In the student union, the educational affairs advocacy is handled by the specialists and the  Executive Board’s educational affairs organisers. Their duty is to ensure that the students’ voices are heard everywhere in the university and that the university staff remember to consider students in their decision-making. You can reach the educational affairs sector via or by marching down to our office.
