Göta studentkår

We are currently the largest students' union in Gothenburg and the second largest in Sweden, representing some 18,000 students. The members of the presidium and union board are trustees elected to lead Göta studentkår over the academic year 2017/2018. We see our main task as working towards improving your education and your study time here at the University of Gothenburg. Among other considerations, we appoint student representatives in all governing bodies at the University, we aim to increase the number of study places, and make education more accessible for those with disabilities.

As a member of Göta studentkår, you will not only contribute to our work towards bettering the education offered by the University, you will also have access to all our special member benefits. For example, one of the most useful benefits availbe to union members is the right to three extra months on the queue at SGS student housing. As a member you also get our discount booklet, with offers on lunch, groceries, coffee and other useful things around Gothenburg. If you enjoy working out, we can also recommend Fysiken, where members of Göta studentkår are entitled to a discount on their gym membership.

For those of you who are extra ambitious, there is also the possibility of becoming an active member of Göta studentkår, with the amount of the time you wish to devote to the union being left entierly up to you: you are free to take part as much or as little as you want! For instance you can act as a mentor to new students, or why not run for the governing body or the board of your specific section? You can also get involved by joining one of Göta studentkårs student groups.

If you want your academic life to be fuller- not to mention more fun- please join us today.
