AMK student card and Pivo

Student card granted by the Student Union is for students studying Bachelor's or Master's Degree in HAMK. International degree programme and exchange students are also entitled to the student card.

The academic year sticker is what makes the student card valid. Sticker will be changed annually, and it is a sign of the paid Student Union membership.


HAMKO's members are entitled to Pivo digital student card, too. See instructions to start using Pivo e.g. from our blog.

Student card cannot be granted for the open university students.
