AYY is looking for student representatives for 2020 – some of the calls continue

Aalto University Student Union (AYY) has decided on 29 October 2019 to open a call for applications for student representatives in the Aalto University administration for the year 2020. Some calls continue until 8 December 11.59 pm because of the lack of applicants. The previous applications shall be considered without a new application.

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://www.ayy.fi/en/student-representatives.

In principle, all undergraduate and doctoral students of Aalto University are eligible to apply.  Students of the school in question are eligible to apply for executive bodies under the schools. Students of the programme in question are eligible to apply for programme-specific executive bodies.

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 19 December 2019.

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.
