Monitor the education system
One of the unions most important missions is to monitor our education here at Chalmers. Your education is important and the time you invest in it should be long-term. During your time here you have both rights and obligations. It is also important to have someone to turn to if things get complicated whether it’s your course, programme or study environment.
Each student division has an educational committee (studienämnd). They represent students in educational matters at your division. They also arrange study breakfasts, monitor certain courses and host various study related events. The committees have contributed to:
- developing pedagogy of course
- problems being discovered and handled
- students being able to make it through their courses
- raising the student voice towards the university
Contact your committee at your student division if you want to be onboard next and help you and your students to a better education.
