AYY is looking for student representatives for 2019 – the calls continue

Aalto University Student Union (AYY) has decided on 26 October 2018 to open a call for applications for student representatives in the Aalto University administration for the year 2019. Four calls continue until 11 December 11.59 pm because of the lack of applicants:

Call for applications for student representatives in the administration of Aalto University

All students of Aalto University are eligible to apply. The descriptions of the different organs of trust contain more detailed information about possible requirements and restrictions. The call for applications closes on 11 December 2018 at 11.59 pm, by which time the applications must be handed in. The application is done via the electronic application form available at https://www.halloped.fi/en . The application instructions and the regulations for student representatives can be found on the Aalto University Student Union website at https://ayy.fi/en/student-union/student-advocacy/student-representatives/

The names of the applicants and their applications may be handed to the associations of Aalto University Student Union and to the responsible Hallopeds it has named for the purpose of giving recommendations when choosing the student representatives in administration. The Board of Aalto University Student Union chooses the student representatives by 18 December 2018.

The Student Union also wishes international students and students of all genders to apply for the student representative positions. The selection will follow the requirements of the Administrative Procedure Act, the Act on Equality Between Women and Men, and the Non-discrimination Act.

Criteria for selection

The selection decisions are made based on the applications, which are written in the field on the application form. The application should clearly show the applicant’s field of study, School, experience relevant to the position, and their ability to hold their position for the duration of the term of office. The criteria used for selection include interest in and commitment to the task, proven knowledge of influencing work in an administrative organ, and contacts to students via e.g. organisations or other types of activity. Representation from different fields of expertise or study, and possibly the stage of the candidates’ studies, are also taken into consideration when making the selection. Previous experience as a student representative or as a person responsible for studies in an association may also be considered advantageous.
