A Guide for the Student Representatives in Administration

Welcome to the summit! As a Hallinnon opiskelijaedustaja, Halloped – a student representative in administration – you’re involved in shaping the future of your university and representing yourself and your fellow students in the decision-making of Aalto.

The Finnish university institution is based on the idea of an academic community that is made up of the professors, the staff of the university and the students. These three groups lead the university representatively in different bodies. In this way, the academic community has everyone’s expertise at its disposal in decision-making.

As a Halloped, you’ll learn to exercise influence and represent in meetings, work with people who have different job descriptions and get to know the ins and outs of the university organisation better.
