OYY & ESN
OYY, the University of Oulu’s resident but independent student union, is the local expert in university student affairs. Offering a youthful working environment and ample opportunities for self-development, OYY is currently seeking a new Erasmus Student Network Leader for the academic year 2013-2014.
Since 2000, OYY has been a part of the ESN network, which is Europe’s largest international student network. ESN works in 36 different countries and is based in Brussels.
Locally based ESN communities, like ESN Oulu, organise cultural and leisure-time activities for both international and domestic students. Many of the international students who take part are exchange students. ESN Oulu helps make them feel more at home, more integrated into the local student community and also provides them with chances to experience all that Oulu and Finland have to offer. The network also provides our local domestic students with a valuable opportunity to internationalize-at-home.
OYY’s ESN section collaborates with the rest of OYY, the University of Oulu’s international services and other student organisations. ESN Oulu represents OYY in ESN Finland, which is the national platform of the network.
ESN LEADER IS EXPECTED TO:
- lead and manage the section’s work
- plan different kinds of culture and leisure activities and excursions for international students at the University of Oulu.
- represent OYY at the national ESN Finland-platform
