Business owner! Would you like to collab?

Student Union OSAKO represents the 8500 students of Oulu University of Applied Sciences. There are several options for companies and organizations to reach our students. The prices for ads are listed in OSAKO’s media card (in Finnish). If you’re interested in advertising your services to Oulu UAS students or would like to have more information in English, please contact OSAKO’s Secretary General.

osakoweb.fi

A banner on OSAKO’s website is an effective way to reach the students. The banner serves as a direct link to your company’s website. If your company is interested in offering benefits for OSAKO members, your contact information will be added to the list of benefits on OSAKO’s website. Students find their way to OSAKO’s website also via our Facebook page, which has more than 4000 followers, or through our Instagram, which boasts over 3k followers.

Student benefits

Together with local companies, OSAKO offers benefits for its members. All partners are listed in student card benefits. OSAKO informs students about new benefits  in its newsletter, which is sent to all Oulu UAS students every second week. Members of OSAKO can be identified by a student card issued by University of Applied Sciences Students in Finland – SAMOK.

Events

Throughout the year, OSAKO organises several parties from small get-togethers to huge festivals of 8 000 people. Sponsors are promoted when marketing the event and/or at the venue.

Give feedback

Is there something wrong with your studies? Would you like to say thank you to OSAKO for the great party last weekend? You’ve come to the right place. Here you can say whatever is on your mind. You may withhold your name.

    My purpose here is to make sure that ordered student cards reach their owners and OSAKO’s systems are working properly. It’s my job to maintain the best opportunities for board members and others to work at OSAKO: I keep all the files in order and take care of office and its daily routines. I have done my studies at OUAS and worked at the student union since 2008. Even though sometimes I feel a bit old in this field, the best part of my job is to work with young people.

    I am the sunny, positive and active Anna-Lyydia. I started as a Specialist at OSAKO at the beginning of the year. I am the specialist at Communications, International affairs and Friend Family Programme.

    I’ve lived abroad four times in my life. The last time I lived in Mongolia was in spring 2019. In my work at OSAKO, I e. g. get to encourage others to travel abroad on student exchange. I love languages and cultures. I am studying Northern Sámi in my spare time.
