Student Representatives

According to Swedish law students have a right to influence and codecide on issues concerning their education.

"Students at the University have the right to be represented in all decision-making and planning body within the University whose activities are relevant to education and to their situation."  

          -University Regulations Chapter 3 § 9


Councils & Committees for Student Representatives


Student representatives are present both at the faculty level and at the institutional level. Usually the questions discussed at the faculty level are more general issues, while the department council meetings discuss issues "closer to the ground" and more specific to each institution and their programs.
