General Assembly of the National Union of Students in Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences SAMOK

The highest decision-making power in our union is exercised by the General Assembly. Students from 22 universities of applied sciences come to the event to represent their student unions. The General Assembly is a thrilling and somewhat exhausting event, but definitely also one of the highlights of the year!

The agenda of the General Assembly of 2024 includes, among other things, SAMOK’s action plan and the election of the Board of Directors for 2025, the strategy, the housing policy paper and the policy paper on student selection and open university of applied sciences education..

SAMOK’s General Assembly will be held on 31 October – 1 November 2024 in Jyväskylä. The Assembly will start with a pre-event gathering and a candidate panel discussion on Wednesday 30 October.

You can participate in the General Assembly on social media by using the hashtag #samokliko.
