Student Representatives of the administration

A student representative is the voice of students in decision making. There are student reps in the University’s governance ranging from the Board of Directors to Degree Programme Committees.

Board of Examiners

The Board of Examiners is a legal University organ that handles student admission, study credits, tuition fees and rectifications of accreditation of studies taken elsewhere. Rectifications are handled according to the University of Oulu Regulations 24§ and 27§ as well as 82§ of the Universities Act. Measures for rectification are also outlined in the Administrative Procedure Act. Acting in the Board of Examiners requires some knowledge of measures for rectification and students’ due process. OYY’s academic affairs specialist trains the student representatives for their task and supports their actions. The organ also includes professors and other teaching staff. The Board of Examiners meets when necessary, as rectification requests must be handled within a fair time frame. The meetings tend to be more focused in the fall due to admissions rectification requests.
