In the University of Oulu students are represented by student representatives. They are also called hallopeds (from Finnish ”hallinnon opiskelijaedustaja”, which translates to student representative). A student representative is the voice of students in decision making. There are more than a hundred student representatives in the University of Oulu. They have in the University’s governance ranging from the Board of Directors to Degree Programme Committees.

Now we are looking for a deputy member in the University Collegium. The collegium is the highest decision making organ in the Universitys hierarchy. It’s responsible in selecting the members to the University Board that come from outside the university. It also confirms the financial statements and year reports of the University. It consists of 24 members, with professors, other staff and students having 8 members and 8 personal deputies each.


The working groups meet approx. 2-5 times in a semester, and the meetings last 1-2 hours. Students are eligible to gain ETCS from participating. Student representatives are paid a fee of 41,20 euros per meeting and can gain ETCS from taking part (2ETCS/ term, maximum of 10ETCS)


The Student Council of the Student Union of the University of Oulu names the student representatives in September-October, and the work starts immediately and ends in the end of 2023. Eligible for the organ are those Student Union members who have left their application within the application period and have enrolled in the University of Oulu by 17 of September. 


The chosen representative must be present as a student at the University of Oulu and a member of OYY during their representative term. Previous experience is not necessary, but we do take it into account. We hope for applications from students from different backgrounds and stages of studies. So you can apply whether you were a first or fifth year student!


In your application, please tell us your major, the stage of your studies and other experience that may affect the selection. Also describe your personal goals and motivation for the representative role. Applications shall be submitted to this announcement by 17 of October 2023 at 23.59.
