A clear connection to the labour market is of great value for all students to be well prepared for future working life.
The University of Gothenburg is responsible for ensuring that all educational programmes have a clear connection to the labour market and should work for broader collaborations with the surrounding society to improve educational relevance.
Getting business contacts during the early phases of education boosts your job opportunities after your studies. Accordingly, Göta studentkår works with various labour market related events and special projects such as work fairs, lectures, workshops and other exciting activities to provide you with advantages in the market.

Göta studentkår’s labour market consists of one centralized Head of Labour Market and five board members with labour market responsibility at each faculty, who work towards the goal that you as a student get to meet your future working life before finishing studies. Together they form the Labour Market Council.
