Tutor activity

HUMAKO, The Student Union of Humak University of Applied Sciences, provides all their students an equal right to tutoring. We have five fields of tutoring. They are peer tutor, marketing tutor, knowledge tutor, sports tutor and international tutor. HUMAKO trains each tutor to their respective fields.

To the support of the exchange students we have international tutors. One international tutor is usually appointed to 2-3 exchange students. Tutors contact the exchange students before they arrive thus tutoring starts early in the exchange process. International tutors acts as support people for the whole exchange period. Tutors help with practical things, like finding an apartment, involving the students in free time activities, and showing around the city. It's also common for the international tutors to organize a farewell party and keep in touch after the exchange period has ended.

If you want to know more about HUMAKO's tutor activity, please contact us.

Educational politics

The idea with educational politics is to make education is meaningful for all students. All the problems and defects are our issues. We want to influence that we have motivational students, who has it good during the studies and will graduate as qualified experts in their own field. There isn't a so small problem that we wouldn't want to attend to, but we don't avoid the bigger issues either.

We contribute by making sure Humak is a worthy educator amongst the other Universities of Applied Science. We want to strive that all the members of HUMAKO has a working and fluent education.  We communicate the issues to our students, to the staff of Humak and discuss problems that occur.

Without you, there is no us and we are students in the same school. A good working communication between the students and the staff is the key for a good developing institution.

Social politics

To the social politics belongs incomes during your studies, health care, and employment after the degree. Words like student benefits, safe studying environment, material costs, student discounts and health care are key words when defining social politics sector. When it's a matter of each student's collective interest, its social politics.

The aim with social politics is to bring fourth the problems and strive to influence in order to make the student's situation better. For this reason we make surveys throughout the year.

Remember, the law allows you to get municipal health care in the city where you study, no matter where you officially live.

In Humak there are different workgroups and boards that take care of among other things the student's well-being and development of education programs. We have student representatives in almost all workgroups to make sure the student's rights are fulfilled. The most important and direct way to get messages from students to the deciding organs in Humak. The workgroups meet variably, some meeting once a year to some meeting once a month. The workgroups discuss, develop, and decide how things are done in Humak, both in the education programs as well as in the regional centers.

HUMAKO's board chooses the representatives as well as all other changes during the year.
