SFS has the task of representing the interests of members and students. SFS represents students with different backgrounds and from different types of education, 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 for decision-makers who decide on issues concerning higher education and students, such as the Riksdag and the government.
SFS is an association of student unions at Swedish universities and colleges. SFS has about fifty member corps which together represent approximately 350 students and doctoral students.
Sweden's United Student Unions has about fifty of the country's student unions among its members.
The doctoral student committee is a committee that is responsible for doctoral student issues within SFS.
Komit represents SFS internationally, as in the European Students' Union.
SQC is the Swedish United Student Union's committee for quality issues.
SFS's task is to represent the members 'interests and to monitor and disseminate information on educational, research and study social issues concerning the students' situation, both nationally and internationally.
On our policy page, you will find information on how SFS stands on various political issues.
Every year, SFS nominates Student City of the Year to draw attention to the hard work that makes life better for students.
