Have an influence and participate

Giving feedback and reporting the issues of one’s own study field gives every student a chance to make things better for everyone. Voting at the council of representatives elections, being a representative and participating in working groups give an individual the chance to have an influence, and to accumulate valuable experience.

We report on current matters on our website, social media and especially in our membeship letter twice a month.

Everyone is encouraged to participate in JAMKO’s trusteeship functions!



Grumble Weeks

One for all and all for one!

JAMKO’s feedback collection concept Grumble Weeks is an important development tool for education, the students’ common issues, JAMKO and the Jamk UAS. At the Grumble Weeks, organized once a year, students have a chance to give feedback related to studies, instruction, guidance and the functions of the student union. The Grumble Weeks last for two weeks and are a part of the Jamk UAS’s quality assurance system. They were organized for the first time in Spring 2010.

Student representation in working groups

Making the student voice heard is an important part of JAMKO’s trusteeship. The students have a stable presence in the administrative organs and working groups of the Jamk University of Applied Sciences. Additionally, students have an influence in the board and the delegation of Keski-Suomen opiskelija-asuntosäätiö KOAS. Participating in a working group gives a student valuable experience and enhances the well-being, decision making capabilities and rights of the student body. New representatives to the working groups are chosen annually, when an old term ends and a new begins. An individual can be chosen as a member of a working group even if s/he does not act actively in a study field student association or the JAMKO council of representatives.

You can find the student representatives for 2023 in the JAMK intra. You can contact the student representatives directly with questions related to the group’s activities.

JAMKO's snail card

The purpose of the Snail card is to remind the teachers in a tongue-in-cheek way to give the grades as is dictated in the degree regulations, that is, within four weeks of the expiration of the study module.

If a teacher has not graded her/his course within a month (four weeks) from the expiration date of the course, the teacher can be turned in to the student union. JAMKO sends the teacher in question a Snail Card via e-mail. Please specify which study module or course you took and what was its expiration date.

Please remember to check that you have done all your responsibilities, completed and returned all assignments and examinations before sending a Snail Card request.

Requests are sent to JAMKO’s education policy responsible, kopo(a)jamko.fi
