Students play an important role in the university's quality work.

Student influence is crucial to maintaining high quality higher education and promoting democratic participation. Student unions play an important role by appointing representatives to decision-making bodies in higher education institutions. This voluntary participation allows students to shape their programmes. The regulatory framework, including the Higher Education Act and the Student Union Ordinance, ensures students' right to representation in decisions concerning education and their institutional situation.

The UKÄ's quality assurance system must cover both state higher education institutions and individual education providers. It is important that the system includes a student perspective during reviews. Including student influence aims to enable students to actively monitor the quality of programmes, making it a crucial aspect that no HEI can overlook.

THS report "A chair is not a study place"

Maja Rosén Head of Educational Influence and Eric Forsell Study Environment Manager have written the report "A chair is not a study place". The lack of available study places has a negative impact on students' mental health and performance. This relationship has been recognised by THS, especially during the pandemic. It was also confirmed in a student survey in spring 2023. The THS report "A chair is not a study place" on study places for self-study is available here Report - A chair is not a study place  (In Swedish)

They will talk about the report in table discussions in the Priority group Self-study places for students.
