Your education - our job!

One of our most important tasks is to make sure that the quality of your education is as good as possible. Therefore we are represented in everything from councils and faculty councils to the university board. Every day we make sure that no decisions are made without the student perspective is taken into account.

Always by your side

If you encounter problems during your studies the student union offers you help. It can be problems related to an exam, a professor, or that you feel discriminated or have problems finding a proper student flat. You can be sure that we always have students best in interest. Membership in Karlstad Student Union provides security.
