About the Swedish National Union of Students


SFS is an association of student unions at Sweden's universities and colleges. SFS has about sixty member associations which together represent approximately 390 students and doctoral students.

SFS has the task of representing the interests of the members and students. SFS represents students with different conditions and from different educations, therefore SFS has a unique opportunity to speak for the student group as a whole. This means that SFS is regarded as an important interlocutor to the decision-makers who decide on matters relating to higher education and students, for example the Riksdag and the government.
