Becoma a student representative in the executive group for Bachelor's Programme in Molecular Biosciences!

Application period:

2020-06-24 - 2020-08-23

Description:

Are you interested in what kind of teaching is organised in your degree programme? This is your chance to influence matters! The Student Union of the University of Helsinki is looking for student representatives for the executive groupof this degree programme for the term ending on 31 December 2020.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT? Each degree programme at the University of Helsinki has an executive group that supports the director of the degree programme and processes the main issues related to the degree programme’s operation. Two actual and two vice members represent students in each executive group.

The preparation of curricula and deciding on the annual teaching schedule are particularly important influencing places for students: executive groups determine the framework for what courses are taught in the schedule, which studies are compulsory to everyone, how much optional studies can be included in degrees, what kind of study material and teaching methods are used on courses and what methods to complete courses each course has. In addition to this, executive groups process issues related to student admissions in the degree programme and the use of teaching and facility resources, for instance.

As a member of the executive group, you will get to influence teaching offered in the degree programme and make students’ voice heard while forming useful networks at the same time. You can also get credits for acting in the executive group.

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF STUDENT REPRESENTATIVES?

Student members of the executive groups of degree programmes are the voice of students in the University’s decision-making. There are only two requirements: you must be registered for attendance at the University of Helsinki, and you must have a justified connection to the degree programme whose executive group you are applying for (e.g. study right or intention to complete studies in the programme).

No special skills are required – having the desire to learn and motivation to act as a student representative is the most important thing. Thoroughly reading the meeting material before the meeting, asking for the opinions of either your fellow students or subject organisation – depending on the situation – on the issues on the meeting agenda and discussing matters in the meeting itself are quite enough to be successful in the position. The Student Union also trains the selected student representatives in administration and provides support and expertise for working in University administration.

HOW DO I APPLY TO BECOME A STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE? Applications should be submitted at www.halloped.fi by Sunday 23 August 2020. The application should clearly indicate your experience as relevant to the position, your motivation, your current major and/or degree programme and study orientation. The Student Union considers the following as advantages: 1) Motivation and commitment to serve in the position 2) Previous experience of acting as a student representative in administration or a study advisor or from other positions related to student advocacy work 3) Connections to the faculty or subject organisation The Student Union hopes to see applications from representatives of different genders and people from different stages of their studies from diverse backgrounds. We assume you to be available for the positions of both an actual member and a vice member. The Student Union strives to consider different disciplines’ representation when making the selections.

For further information on acting in the executive group of a degree programme and the call for applications, please contact Specialist in Educational Policy Jenna Sorjonen, tel. 0503255202, email jenna.sorjonen(at)hyy.fi.

Each degree programme at the University of Helsinki has an executive group that supports the director of the degree programme and processes the main issues related to the degree programme’s operation. Two actual and two vice members represent students in each executive group.

The preparation of curricula and deciding on the annual teaching schedule are particularly important influencing places for students: executive groups determine the framework for what courses are taught in the schedule, which studies are compulsory to everyone, how much optional studies can be included in degrees, what kind of study material and teaching methods are used on courses and what methods to complete courses each course has. In addition to this, executive groups process issues related to student admissions in the degree programme and the use of teaching and facility resources, for instance.

As a member of the executive group, you will get to influence teaching offered in the degree programme and make students’ voice heard while forming useful networks at the same time. You can also get credits for acting in the executive group.

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF STUDENT REPRESENTATIVES?

Student members of the executive groups of degree programmes are the voice of students in the University’s decision-making. There are only two requirements: you must be registered for attendance at the University of Helsinki, and you must have a justified connection to the degree programme whose executive group you are applying for (e.g. study right or intention to complete studies in the programme).

No special skills are required – having the desire to learn and motivation to act as a student representative is the most important thing. Thoroughly reading the meeting material before the meeting, asking for the opinions of either your fellow students or subject organisation – depending on the situation – on the issues on the meeting agenda and discussing matters in the meeting itself are quite enough to be successful in the position. The Student Union also trains the selected student representatives in administration and provides support and expertise for working in University administration.

HOW DO I APPLY TO BECOME A STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE?

Applications should be submitted at www.halloped.fi by Sunday 23 August 2020.

The application should clearly indicate your experience as relevant to the position, your motivation, your current major and/or degree programme and study orientation. The Student Union considers the following as advantages: 1) Motivation and commitment to serve in the position 2) Previous experience of acting as a student representative in administration or a study advisor or from other positions related to student advocacy work 3) Connections to the faculty or subject organisation

The Student Union hopes to see applications from representatives of different genders and people from different stages of their studies from diverse backgrounds. We assume you to be available for the positions of both an actual member and a vice member. The Student Union strives to consider different disciplines’ representation when making the selections.

For further information on acting in the executive group of a degree programme and the call for applications, please contact Specialist in Educational Policy Jenna Sorjonen, tel. 0503255202, email jenna.sorjonen(at)hyy.fi.

As a member of the executive group, you will get to influence teaching offered in the degree programme and make students’ voice heard while forming useful networks at the same time. You can also get credits for acting in the executive group.

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF STUDENT REPRESENTATIVES?

Student members of the executive groups of degree programmes are the voice of students in the University’s decision-making. There are only two requirements: you must be registered for attendance at the University of Helsinki, and you must have a justified connection to the degree programme whose executive group you are applying for (e.g. study right or intention to complete studies in the programme).

No special skills are required – having the desire to learn and motivation to act as a student representative is the most important thing. Thoroughly reading the meeting material before the meeting, asking for the opinions of either your fellow students or subject organisation – depending on the situation – on the issues on the meeting agenda and discussing matters in the meeting itself are quite enough to be successful in the position. The Student Union also trains the selected student representatives in administration and provides support and expertise for working in University administration.

HOW DO I APPLY TO BECOME A STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE?

Applications should be submitted at www.halloped.fi by Sunday 23 August 2020.

The application should clearly indicate your experience as relevant to the position, your motivation, your current major and/or degree programme and study orientation. The Student Union considers the following as advantages: 1) Motivation and commitment to serve in the position 2) Previous experience of acting as a student representative in administration or a study advisor or from other positions related to student advocacy work 3) Connections to the faculty or subject organisation

The Student Union hopes to see applications from representatives of different genders and people from different stages of their studies from diverse backgrounds. We assume you to be available for the positions of both an actual member and a vice member. The Student Union strives to consider different disciplines’ representation when making the selections.

There are only two requirements: you must be registered for attendance at the University of Helsinki, and you must have a justified connection to the degree programme whose executive group you are applying for (e.g. study right or intention to complete studies in the programme).

No special skills are required – having the desire to learn and motivation to act as a student representative is the most important thing. Thoroughly reading the meeting material before the meeting, asking for the opinions of either your fellow students or subject organisation – depending on the situation – on the issues on the meeting agenda and discussing matters in the meeting itself are quite enough to be successful in the position. The Student Union also trains the selected student representatives in administration and provides support and expertise for working in University administration.

HOW DO I APPLY TO BECOME A STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE?

Applications should be submitted at www.halloped.fi by Sunday 23 August 2020.

The application should clearly indicate your experience as relevant to the position, your motivation, your current major and/or degree programme and study orientation. The Student Union considers the following as advantages: 1) Motivation and commitment to serve in the position 2) Previous experience of acting as a student representative in administration or a study advisor or from other positions related to student advocacy work 3) Connections to the faculty or subject organisation

The Student Union hopes to see applications from representatives of different genders and people from different stages of their studies from diverse backgrounds. We assume you to be available for the positions of both an actual member and a vice member. The Student Union strives to consider different disciplines’ representation when making the selections.

Apply to the Faculty Council of the Faculty of Science!

Application period:

2020-06-24 - 2020-08-23

Description:

We are looking for one vice member to the faculty council of the Faculty of Science for the ongoing term that ends 31 December 2021.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Faculty councils are multi-member administrative bodies of the faculties and chaired by the deans. The faculty councils are responsible for developing teaching and research at the faculties, controlling quality management of research and teaching, deciding on issues such as degree requirements, teaching schedules and student selection criteria as well as processing any far-reaching plans and other important matters of principle at the faculties. The faculty councils meet around once a month during academic terms. Further information on how the faculty councils operate is available in Flamma (https://flamma.helsinki.fi/en/group/matemaattis-luonnontieteellinen-tiedekunta/tiedekuntaneuvosto). According to the Universities Act, the administrative language of the University of Helsinki is Finnish, and due to this, the faculty councils work mainly in Finnish. However, it is possible to use other languages in the meetings as per agreement. A good command of Finnish is an advantage in the position.

As a member of a faculty council, you will get to influence the future direction of your faculty and discipline, make students’ voice heard and create useful networks at the same time. You can also receive credits for acting in faculty councils, and a fee is paid for attending the meetings.

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF STUDENT REPRESENTATIVES?

Student members of the faculty councils act as the voice of students in the University’s decision-making. There are only two clear requirements: you must be registered for attendance in the faculty in question, and you must not be in an employment relationship with the University that could be interpreted as a full-time one. No special skills are required in advance. Thoroughly reading the meeting material before the meeting, asking for the opinions of, depending on the situation, either your fellow students or subject organisation on the issues on the meeting agenda and discussing matters in the meeting itself are quite enough to be successful in the position. The Student Union also provides training for the selected student representatives in administration and offers its support and expertise for their work in University administration.

HOW DO I APPLY TO BECOME A STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE? Applications should be submitted at www.halloped.fi by 23 August 2020. The application should clearly indicate your current major or degree programme and study orientation. We assume that you are available for the positions of both actual and vice member.

1) Motivation towards the position

2) Understanding of current issues at the faculty

3) Contacts with a faculty or subject organisation

4) Previous experience of acting as a student representative in administration, as a study advisor or in some other position related to student advocacy work

The Student Union hopes to receive applications from representatives of different genders and people from different stages of their studies from diverse backgrounds. The Student Union strives to take into account the representation of different disciplines when making the selections.

For further information on the position and the application process, please contact Specialist in Educational Policy Jenna Sorjonen, 050 325 5202, jenna.sorjonen@hyy.fi (away from work 25 June – 9 August).
