Supervision of the rights and interests of students
The most important task of the Student Union is the supervision of the rights and interests of students in educational and social matters. The supervision of the rights and interests is often invisible due to the nature of it. Student Union has chosen student representatives to all the most important committees and teams inside Centria University of Applied Sciences.
Educational matters include everything related to teaching: quality, organization of lectures and study modules and the level of teaching. Feedback discussions together with the heads of degree programs and students are excellent opportunities to give feedback and improve the quality of studies inside the degree.
Social matters include everything related to study subsidies and legal issues. The mental and physical wellbeing are also social matters, for example student healthcare and the accessibility of it. Did you know that as a student you have the right for healthcare services (including dental healthcare services) in the municipality where you study?
In the everyday life of students the most visible parts of the supervision of the rights and interests are student discounts, sport possibilities, different kinds of events and tutoring activities. The Student Union aims to get as many discounts and benefits as possible for the students to utilize.
