ABOUT THE STUDENT UNION - SAIKO AND MEMBERSHIP
By joining the Student Union, you receive a student card, which also functions as a member card for SAIKO. With the card you can use local and national benefits for students and prove your student status. Membership /cards are separate for each Student Union – you can only join the Student Union of your own UAS.
As a member, you get a possibility to participate in Student Unions actions and to affect student-related decision making both locally and nationwide. You can vote and place yourself as a candidate in Representative Council elections and apply for the Executive Board. Membership of the Student Union does not obligate you to anything (work for the union etc.). So it's basically only for YOUR benefit!
Are you an active in the field of civic activities? In SAIKO you can plan and organize student events, influence in educational issues, students wellbeing and more. This all will benefit you in the future, for example in your career.
