Our main goal is to protect the rights and interests of students. For this purpose, we organize actions, demonstrations, and other initiatives that help make the voice of the University of Tartu students and, in general, students as a social group heard.

Our recent most noteworthy projects are:

  • The #bringyourcoins demonstration at the opening ceremony of the 2022/23 academic year;
  • The pilot project of the student canteen;
  • "Politicians to the university!" student shadow day.

You can find links to all these and other our projects on this page.
