Student unions

Last changed: 08 January 2024

SLU has eight student unions which represent the student's interests and work to ensure high-quality courses and programmes. The student unions are independent from the university.

Join a union

Union membership gives you the opportunity to influence the important work that your union is doing. It also gives you access to a broad spectrum of social activities such as events, parties and various students' societies.

Student unions and the law

Students have the right to influence the education at their university. Universities must endeavour to enable students to play an active role in the continued development of courses and programmes (Higher Education Act, Chapter 1 Section 4a). Students also have the right to be represented when decisions or preparations are made that are relevant to their education or the students' situation (Higher Education Act, Chapter 2 Section 7).

You will find information about how to become a member on the union's web sites or by sending them an e-mail. Use the links below.
