Ministerial Seminar hosted by SFS & DSF

The Swedish Association of Student Unions and the Danish National Union of Students invites you to start the term with a high-level seminar on reforms for higher educational quality.

Society is rapidly changing, yet the Swedish higher education system has not undergone any comprehensive reforms since the university reform of 1994. In Denmark, however, a series of reforms in the field of higher education have recently been implemented.

What can Sweden learn from the Danish experiences to maintain high educational quality and student influence?
