Student Representatives

Student representatives are ordinary students who have been chosen by student union METKA to represent students’ viewpoints and needs in the decision-making processes at Metropolia UAS. Student representatives are chosen usually for one-year period in open search that takes place in autumn. The supplementary search is opened whenever there are open positions to be filled.

Check the instructions and open positions here!

Notice!  The working language in most of the representative positions is Finnish, so in order to represent, fluent Finnish is usually required.

Advisory Councils of study programmes

Each degree in Metropolia has an advisory board. They maintain the connection between work life and the university and act as an expert in teaching in this field. The advisory board covers issues such as curriculum reforms. Only students of the given field may apply to their respective advisory boards. Most councils operate in Finnish and they do not have an official English name. This is why they are shown here in Finnish.
