This student card is for degree and exchange students.
Conditions of issue
This card is for students in Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes in universities of applied sciences.
You can receive a student card if you meet the following criteria:
1. You are a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree student in a university of applied sciences.
2. You have registered as attending for the term/academic year.
3. You join your student union.
The use of this student card
As a sign for membership of Student Union Kaakko you will get an official AMK-student card. With that you can prove that you are entitled for student discounts when travelling by VR train or Matkahuolto busses and when eating in student restaurants. The student card also gives you multiple other student discounts locally and nationally. In many places in Finland students can get discounts so by showing your student card life is much cheaper.
The student card granted by Student Union Kaakko can also be used as a library card in Xamk libraries, for printing, copying and scanning at Xamk campuses and as a mean of payment in Xamk restaurants.
The validity of the card will always be proved by the semester- or academic year sticker. When you've paid the membership fee, you're entitled to get a valid sticker.
Ordering the student card
There is a digital form for the order. We will ask your study details in the form. You'll also need you student number, which can be found in Peppi. In your own profile go to settings and personal settings and you'll find your student number as a grey number on the top left corner, right before the Degree Programme -information. You can check the number in Peppi a little before the semester starts.
The face picture
The picture must be a faceshot of yourself, your face must show in the picture totally and you must be easily recognisable. So forget sunglasses and funny hats from the picture. However the picture does not have to be an official passport picture, but it needs to be like a passport picture.
The delivery of the card
When you have filled in the membership form and the order is forwarded you will get a confirmation from Paytrail. After that wait for a couple of weeks. You will get an email when the card is ready. After that you can collect your card from Student Union’s office or you can reply to that email and ask us to send it to your home address. We would appreciate if at least those students who live in their own campus city would collect the card from our office. Sending the card by the mail is always on student's own responsibility.
