Self-Hack will be organised for all new students next fall. We are now looking for students to become facilitators and guide new students in the event. Every facilitator will get a training for the task and a possibility to do Self-Hack for themselves. Read more and apply here:

UniOulu Self-Hack will be held on the 4th of September from 10 to 3. The aim of this event is to support students in planning their studies, integration, creating balanced student life and having the sense of belonging to our university and their field of study. The event will be organised in collaboration with Creativity Squads. 

During the day, facilitators ensure a safe and nice working environment, keep the students on schedule and help students when needed. Facilitators are expected to be motivated in helping students to integrate in their studies and student life, participate in the training during spring or August, and enthusiastic for creating a memorable starting event for studies.

By participating, facilitators learn the Self-Hack method and pedagogical skills, get tools for planning the future and design thinking, official Self-Hack certificate and university of Oulu college shirt. It is also possible to get 5 credits and get to know the new students in a new way.

The day itself starts with an introduction for each faculty at 10 AM. From there, students will continue the day with their facilitators in small groups.
