Acting as a student representative

Each qualification has two student representatives who sit on the qualification development group and the work life steering group. In addition to these, representatives are sought for Laurea-wide bodies. In these Development Groups you are able to give your opinions and influence how individual courses might look in the future or the curriculum over all. Also your voice might change the way the Laurea staff sees the education as a whole.

As a Student Representative you are able to get course credits and work life skills such as argumentation, negotiation and teamwork skills. Student Union Laureamko offers training for all the student representatives 4 to 5 times a year. The first training session for new student representatives has been recorded and will be sent to the elected student representatives with the confirmation of their election.


Requirements to be a student representative

Applicants will be required to communicate with Student Union Laureamko and to participate in training provided to Student Representatives. Your commitment for the whole year of 2024 will be seen as an asset in the application progress. The Student Union membership will also be seen as an advantage. We hope that the applicant has a genuine interest in the topic of the Development Group and motivation for the applied position. Those chosen as Student Representatives will have their full names, emails and photos uploaded to Laureamko’s website.
