FSHS services expands to cover students of universities of applied sciences

The Government of Finland’s proposal for higher education student’s health care was approved by the Parliament on 1.3.2019. The aim of the law is to secure well-functioning and equal student health care services for both university and university of applied sciences students. Kela will have administrative responsibility for providing health services to higher education students, including the collection of a healthcare fee. The services will continue to be delivered by the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS). The Act will come into force on 1 January 2021.

OYY will communicate about the practical changes in more detail closer to the act coming into force.

We are looking for extra Board members – Apply for the Executive Board of the Student Union by the 29th of January

Background: The Student Council proposed in its meeting 3.12.2018 that the Board of the Student Union should reopen the application period for the Board of the Student Union, because additional members are needed in the Board. The Board decided to reopen the application period in its meeting on the 21st of January. 

As a member of the Executive Board of the Student Union you have a unique opportunity to develop yourself as a student influencer, make new friends, and learn a wide range of work-life skills. You get to influence how OYY is made visible to the student body and to create a Student Union that is better than ever before. Your work for a better student life begins when you are elected to the Executive Board of the Student Union for the year 2019.

Working in the Board offers a unique opportunity to manage and develop the Student Union’s daily activities according to the Student Council’s policy. You do not have to be superhuman to apply for the Executive Board: all you need is motivation and eagerness to learn and develop yourself during your year of working towards making a better life of students. As a member of the board you act as a bond between students, and as an OYY-kummi you get to communicate closely with different fields and disciplines. You get to expand your abilities in project management, leadership and organizing, to improve your social skills, to network, and to develop numerous other abilities needed during and after your studies. A year on the Executive Board will get you amazing new friends from all over Finland and the opportunity to advocate for over 11,000 students on the university, city, and nationwide levels.

Your position in the Executive Board is a position of trust, in which you get to, for example, select the student representatives for multiple different decision-making bodies, arrange events and campaigns, be responsible for the Student Union’s finances, and to advocate for the students’ interests. Members of the Executive Board work in all kinds of varying positions, which means that you will have a chance to utilize your own skillset. You might want to contact previous board members to ask them about the work they did!

Working in the Executive Board requires commitment and attendance in weekly activities such as board meetings and discussions, project development, and political influencing, all which usually take place during office hours. Working in the board is not a full-time job, so flexible studying while working is possible. In order to ensure the livelihood of board members, they receive a monthly paycheck of 500 euros.

After a year in the board you have received:

  • a large network of contacts and new friends all over Finland
  • confidence and courage to overcome even the most difficult situations
  • unique academic capital and new perspectives for life
  • experience in a wide range of working skills, such as teamwork, project management and conference skills

How to apply:

All members of the Student Union are eligible for the Executive Board of the Student Union. Please send your application along with your CV in PDF-form to hakemukset@nulloyy.fi by 11:59 pm on the 22nd of January. The Student Council will elect the board member(s) in its meeting the 3rd of December.
