A safe point in your student life

In addition to arranging joint activities, such as day trips, parties, nature experiences, pub nights and zeroing in - all the fun that contributes to a more pleasant social life during your time as a student - we also work carefully with student influence and educational monitoring. We usually say that we are everything from joy and fellowship to seriousness.

At Mid Sweden University, many of our students and members have organized themselves into what fraternities or cultural associations. They monitor all educations and ensure the qualities of the programs, something we do, among other things, through close contact with students at each program. In this way, we also ensure that student influence increases.

As a member, you are not just involved and influencing. You also get access to discounts and offers, including at GIF Sundsvall's home matches, at hotel accommodation and leisure activities.

We are an independent non-profit organization that primarily works with students' rights and well-being. In dialogue with Mid Sweden University, Sundsvall county and many private and non-profit actors, we work to remedy any shortcomings in your education and to make Sundsvall a better student city. We are also the one who offers you a helping hand when you feel that you have been unfairly judged in your study results or when you for one reason or another feel bad and need support.

Become a student representative and influence your education

The influence of students is an important part of the Student Union in Sundsvall. Perhaps our main task is to ensure that students' interests are always monitored. We do this by appointing student representatives in various preparatory and decision-making bodies at the university. We always see that the students are represented, regardless of whether it is at a principal's meeting or in the disciplinary committee

Student representatives are at every stage of the school and depending on interest, there are a number of councils or committees, from the very top (university board) to locally on your program council. There is advice for different areas, such as the research college. There is also a subject college that influences questions about course literature, examiners and other things connected to each course.
