What is HÖK and what is it there for?
The Students' Union of Campus Savaria of the University of Western Hungary (NYME SEK HÖK) is a body democratically elected by SEK students to stand up for their interests. Its most important task is to represent and defend the interests of SEK students at the various SEK fora.
Each enrolled SEK student is automatically a member of the Students' Union, irrespective of the type of their training programmes. The HÖK Elective Board represents students at University and Faculty Councils and other decision-making organisations. The members of the Students' Union are elected. HÖK members are elected by the students of their respective Faculties.
At overall University level, the highest body to represent students' interest is the EHÖK, whereas the highest body to represent students' interests at Faculty level is the Faculty HÖK. Students' Union decisions are adopted at the sessions of the HÖK Elective Board. Via its democratically elected members and enjoying minimum and maximum voting rights of ¼ and 1/3 respectively as provided for in the Higher Education Act, the Students' Union also participates in the sessions of the Senate and in the Faculty Councils.
The legitimacy of the operation of the Students' Union is safeguarded by a Supervisory Board made up of SEK students.
