Advocacy and guidance

Advocacy and guidance

Do you need advice or advocacy services but are unsure where to turn? Send a message to our advocacy specialists. The student union’s advocacy specialists will advise and guide you to the best of their ability. They can help you, for example, in conflict situations with the university, in matters related to student health, and many other problems related to student life. If you come to Finland from abroad to study, you can also contact us with questions regarding residency, for example.

Advice on the development of education within your field of study or school is available from student representatives in administration appointed by AYY.

In matters related to subsistence, you should first consult Kela. In case of employment rights, please contact your trade union.
