Well-being and benefit of students is at the core of everything the student union does. OSAKO represents students in educational and welfare matters, and fosters active and vibrant student life by organizing parties, trips and other events. OSAKO also negotiates new discounts and benefits for students.
Advocacy work is in the heart of OSAKO’s work. The interests of Oamk students are being promoted in several ways. We participate in the working groups of Oamk, lobby local politicians and other decision-makers and appoint student representatives to Oamk administration and degree programme teams.
Through the student union students can influence and participate in looking after common interests. One can, for example, join OSAKO’s teams or become a tutor or a student representative in a degree programme team. All OSAKO members have a right to vote and run as a candidate in the Election of Student Representatives.
