JOKA – Challenges in sense of community placed by continuous learning and internationalization in universities of applied sciences
Organizing: University of Applied Sciences Students in Finland – SAMOK ry, Arene ry / Participating: Actives and staff of student unions, staff of universities of applied sciences who are in charge of services and student activities
OSAKO is taking part in JOKA project organized by SAMOK and Arene. The project aims to make various student groups as a part of school community better and take individual needs of these groups into account better. The project focuses on student groups that usually don’t attach to studying community as strongly as typical young students, such as international degree students.
OTE - Students as developers of employment-promoting practices alongside the staff of universities of applied sciences
The main implementer of the project is Turku University of Applied Sciences. The co-implementers of the project are Diaconia University of Applied Sciences, LAB University of Applied Sciences, Oulu University of Applied Sciences and Savonia University of Applied Sciences.
The aim of the OTE project (2019–2021) is to boost the employment of students through cooperation between student unions and universities of applied sciences. Ways to achieve this goal include job search clinics related to multi-channel job search, supporting entrepreneurship through cooperative activities, and labeling the skills of working life. All activities take place through joint development, which means the students themselves are involved in planning and implementing the project’s measures to promote employment.
