The goal is to learn about the international activities of subject associations and student clubs, learn to take responsibility for managing common affairs, and participate in the development activities and internationalisation of the study environments and the university community.
The student carries out the duties related to their position of trust by participating actively in international subject association and student club activities.
The student can gain ECTS credits for these positions of trust as follows: - One ECTS credit (1 ECTS) can be gained by acting as the person responsible for international affairs in the board of a subject association or an international club for at least one year.
NOTE! However, a maximum of five ECTS credits (5 ECTS) in total can be received from subject association and student club activities. All in all, a maximum of ten ECTS credits (10 ECTS) can be received due to acting in a position of trust (subject association and student club activities + work in administration and working groups).
