Student representatives can be found both in the administration and other bodies. In general, the duties of student representatives are to disclose the opinions of students and represent the students in different events. The nomination and the activities of the student representatives have been decided by the student union’s Council of Representatives as they have decided on the Standing Order on Electing Student Representatives.

The student union representatives

The student union is connected with different associations, foundations and communities. Depending on the place, the student union’s student representative is nominated by either the council or the board.

Tampere has about 35,000 university students, who form about the sixth of the whole city’s residents. TREY and Tampere University of Applied Sciences student body Tamko’s representatives work in cooperation in the group doing urban advocacy.

The student representatives are sometimes also called hallopeds. They operate as student representatives in the bodies of our University’s administration. Student representatives operate as independent full members of the body and represent all students of the whole University, faculty or alternatively the degree programme comprehensively. Any student union member enrolled as present can apply to be a student representative with the open application.

The student union nominates student representatives to e.g. the Academic Board, the Education Council and Faculty Councils. In addition to this, guilds, associations and faculty associations nominate student representatives in many working groups on the faculty level. The student representative body’s work is very important, because they ensure that the points of views and voices of students can be seen and heard in the development of education and the University.

You don’t have to be a veteran at student influencing or an expert at meetings to become a student representative. If you are interested in promoting and supervising the interests of all students while you’re studying, you were born to be a student representative. Through the position of a student representative, you can be a part of the wondrous world of student influencing!
