Through the student unions, students are represented in decision- and policy-making boards that concern education at every level within Lund University.
The unions also arrange social activities, welcome events for new students, career fairs and a range of other projects and committees. As a student, you can easily get involved in the unions' work and seize the opportunity to gain leadership experience.
Student unions consist of student representatives and course registrars and have as their most important task to guard, maintain and improve the quality of the education at the University. There are nine student unions at Lund University, seven of which are affiliated with Studentlund. The union you belong to depends on your subject area:
- Faculty of Engineering students' union (Technologkåren vid LTH/TLTH)
- Faculty of Fine Arts students' union, for students of fine and performing arts (Studentkåren vid Konstnärliga fakulteten)
- Faculty of Law students' union (Juridiska Föreningen)
- Humanities and Theology students' union (Humanistiska och Teologiska Studentkåren/HTS)
- PhD students' union, for all PhD students (Lunds Doktorandkår)
- School of Economics and Management students' union (LundaEkonomerna)
- The Social Sciences students' union (Samhällsvetarkåren)
The unions are gathered under the umbrella organisation Lunds universitets studentkårer (LUS).
