The student union’s task is to stand for the students’ interests and needs and support them in protecting their rights. The union has more than 140 students from each institute and faculty, and their work is coordinated by the office and the board. The students are represented in every institute’s and faculty’s council, the Senate’s meeting and every committee that influences student life. You can become a candidate for student representative every spring.
In the 2022/2023 academic year, the Student Union has four working groups: quality of education, communication, doctoral students and the spirit of UTSU. In addition, one of the main focus topics is the challenges related to financing higher education, which is one of the priorities of the representative office.
