Student councils

The student rights work performed by Student Councils constitute the mainstay of the student governance at Stockholm University. The councils are built upon students' intent on organizing themselves to better their education. They are a part of the Student Union but exercise a great deal of independence on how to work and which objectives to pursue.

The main task of a Student Council is to represent the students at a given department/programme/course and work towards improving the quality of the education. Their work may also extend to other matters such as equality, environmental health, career opportunities and social events.

Swedish are predominantly spoken throughout the Student Councils. However, people of all languages are encouraged to participate in student governance.

To join, please contact the Student Council at your department. You are also welcome with inquiries on student participation to the Student Governance Officer at your faculty.

Phd student councils

The Phd Student Council at your institution is open to all interested graduate students. It handles PhD issues at their own institution and choose representatives for graduate students at the institution's board of directors. You can get involved in the council to affect your education and gain better insight into the university's activities and your own rights.

If you're interested in participating in a meeting, please contact your council's president. Many councils always conduct their meetings in english, while other councils announces in advance if meetings are to be held in english rather than Swedish.

For more information on how your PhD Student Council can actively work with different issues, or if you want help to start up one at your institution, please get in touch with the PhD Student Ombudsman.

Compensation for elected office

Most comissions in councils entitles you to prolongation of your employment. This means that, over several years and comissions, it may add several months of extra time on your PhD employment. This may also be a merit to take with you after your dissertation.

Faculty councils and central councils

All faculties except, per se, the Faculty of Law have a Faculty Council: The Faculty of Law has only one Student Council which thus also serves as its Faculty Council.

Faculty Councils consist of representatives from all the Student and PhD Student Councils of a given department. Within a Faculty Council issues are raised that regard the students of a faculty as a whole.

The Faculty Councils also appoint student representatives for preparatory and decision-making bodies at the university, such as The Faculty Board.

The Central Councils consist of students that represent the Faculty Councils.
