Aalto University Student Union (AYY) is seeking for student representatives in the Aalto University administration for the year 2024. The supplementary call for applications opens on 12 February and closes on 26 February 2024 at 11.59 pm.

Applications are submitted in Finnish, Swedish or English via the electronic application form available at The application instructions and the regulations for student representatives can be found on the Aalto University Student Union website at

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. Programme-specific executive bodies are in general meant for students of said programmes, but applications from students in the same School or otherwise reasonably linked to the programmes are welcome.

Associations within AYY will be consulted in making the decision proposal. The names of the applicants and their applications may be handed to actors within the associations and the halloped responsibles named by the Student union for the purpose of giving recommendations.

AYY emphasises equality and diversity in its operation. We hope to get applications from international students, students of different genders and from any and all other backgrounds.

Criteria for selection

The selection decisions are made based on the applications written in the application form. The application should clearly show the applicant’s e-mail address, field of study, School, experience relevant to the position, and their ability to hold their position for the duration of the term of office. If you are applying only for a representative position or only for a deputy position, please mention it in your application text – only checking the checkbox on the form will not be binding in the decision making.

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., associations or other types of activity. Be sure to concisely describe what you think are the most important development targets of Aalto University, your School or any other unit to which you are applying to become a student representative.

Representation from different fields of expertise or study, and the stage of the candidates’ studies, are also taken into consideration when making the selection. Especially in the selections of Academic Affairs Committees, previous experience as a student representative or as a person responsible for studies in an association may also be considered advantageous, but the desire and motivation to work for the good of students is definitely enough.

The proposed fee for applying for an extension is another slap in the face for students

Orpo’s government is proposing a fee of 50 euros for university students applying for an extension to complete their studies. The government’s goal is to raise the level of education in Finland, but at the same time, it is adding new obstacles to students’ graduation. Combined with the cuts to subsistence, adding a fee for applying for an extension only serves to repeat the same old message to students: you are nothing but a burden to society.
