Since the spring of 2014, the student union yet again represents the postgraduates at LiU. To represent postgraduates first and foremost means that we appoint postgraduate representatives to the different bodies and boards of the university. We also push matters to improve the situation of the postgraduates.
The student union must represent you, as a postgraduate, towards the university. We do this by, among other things, appointing postgraduate representatives. The student union has representatives on all levels within the university, from the university board all the way down to different strategy groups. Many of the seats are especially reserved for postgraduates, where you, as a postgraduate, are welcomed to apply for available seats.
As our mission to represent postgraduates is relatively new, we are very eager to get as many opinions as possible around the postgraduates’ situation. Do not hesitate to share your opinions with us. This is easiest done through your section or by contacting us directly using the contact information to the right.
Through our joint committee Sveriges förenade studentkårer (SFS) we also push matters concerning postgraduates’ situation on a national level. Read more about which questions SFS drives concerning postgraduates here.
