1. OYY lanseeraa uuden help@nulloyy.fi-palvelun

Oulun yliopiston ylioppilaskunta lanseeraa uuden help@nulloyy.fi-palvelun, jonka tarkoituksena on helpottaa ylioppilaskunnan asiantuntijapalveluiden saavutettavuutta. Jatkossa opiskelijan ei tarvitse tietää, keneltä ylioppilaskunnan asiantuntijoista kannattaa kysyä apua, vaan hän voi toimittaa avunpyyntönsä yhteen sähköpostiosoitteeseen.

Ylioppilaskunnan henkilökunta arvioi opiskelijan puolesta, kenen asiantuntijan vastuualueelle hänen auttaminen kuuluu. Apua tarjoavat koulutuspoliittinen, sosiaalipoliittinen sekä kansainvälisten ja järjestöasioiden asiantuntija.

Opiskelijat voivat ottaa yhteyttä ylioppilaskuntaan tuttuun tapaan myös sosiaalisen median kautta. Viestejä voi lähettää Facebookin, Instagramin ja Twitterin kautta. Ylioppilaskunta haluaa kannustaa erityisesti Twitterin käyttöön, koska siellä esitetyt kysymykset ja vastaukset ovat myös muiden opiskelijoiden nähtävillä.

The staff of the Student Union then evaluates who of them should help the student. The ones who offer help are Specialist in Academic Affairs, Specialist in Social Affairs and Specialist in International Affairs and Student Organizations.

Students can reach the Student Union also via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. The Student Union recommends that questions would be raised in Twitter so that as many as possible would see them and the answers to them.

Thesis for Good, Useful Internship

You can find below the brand new Thesis for Good Useful Internship made by Student Union of University of Oulu (OYY). In OYY we find that the practises related to internships and its phases vary notably between programmes. Thus, we have made the Thesis for Good Useful Internship to guide and harmonize the practices and principles of internships in every Faculty. We have sent the thesis to all programme coordinators. We hope the Thesis will be helpful!

Internship requires cooperation between the student, the degree programme and the employer.

Both the degree programme and the employer have a person who is responsible for the internship.

The employer, the student and the contact person at the university make a contract of the internship.

All phases of the internship support the objectives of the degree.

It is clear for the student, the employer and the university what is required of them and which are their responsibilities.

The learning objectives of the internship are written clearly in the curriculum.

The student formulates learning objectives for his/her internship, which the university and the employer approve and comment before the start of the internship.

The employer names a supervisor for the student, who helps to assess how the student’s working life skills have developed during the internship.

The student reflects on how the he/she has achieved the learning objectives and how his/her know-how has developed throughout the internship process.

The student is supported sufficiently in each phase of the internship.

It is acknowledged what else the internship requires from the student, besides the working hours.

Non-paid internships have sufficient amount of study credits, so that the student can use student allowance months for the internship.

After the internship the student writes a report according to the requirements of the degree programme. In the report he/she assesses both the development of his/her professional and generic working life skills.

The student gets constructive and appropriate feedback of the internship from the employer and the representative of the degree programme.

Student: have you experienced bullying or harassment in the University? Tell us your story anonymously and help us to give a voice for bullying in universities

Unfortunately bullying is an everyday issue in the academic world. There’s not enough talk about harassment or bullying – it’s still a taboo. OYY wants to remind all of you that it’s not accepted to bully or harass people in the academic world among students or staff members. Any kind of bullying or harassment must be intervened!

OYY gathers now stories of students who have experienced bullying, harassment or for example homophobic, racist or sexist behaviour in the University of Oulu. OYY will use the stories for a campaign against bullying and harassment. Tell us your story anonymously and help us advance a good life for students. Please send your story by 31.10.2016.

Remember that when you encounter bullying or harassment you can contact OYY’s contact people for bullying, who support and give advice to students who feel they have become victims of bullying. The contact people do not keep a record of the people who have got in touch, and they work under the obligation of secrecy. The conversations are confidential. The contact people do not discuss your issues between themselves if you wish so.
