Halloped is short for ”hallinnon opiskelijaedustaja”, which means student representative in administration. Hallopeds are normal students, who participate in the activities of academic committees, educational councils, and different work groups and bodies. They represent students in different organs and are independent agents, who aren’t  bound by an association’s or AYY’s opinion. If you are interested in affecting your school’s or department’s activities, advocacy, or education policy, you can apply to be a halloped. All members of the student union can apply.


Our department’s halloped-activity is coordinated by AYY’s ARTS halloped responsible. Hallopeds and other educational policy-actives form a educational policy sector, that gathers regularly by invitation of the guild’s advocacy responsible.

If something in your studies leaves you wondering, or even vex or irk you, contact the educational policy sector, and join if you are interested in that. Hallopeds exist to solve problems and to bring up issues.


More general knowledge about the different committees can be found here and more about AYY’s advocacy here.
