Education policy

The education policy is the developing of the matters which are related to the quality and contents of the education. In the student union the education policy means that the chosen confidence actors represent students in different education political teams. These teams and task forces work on matters such as degree structures, curricula, guidance processes and instructions, including the Degree Regulation and RPL guidelines. In the teams the students are able to have effect.

Social policy

The social policy is affecting the matters which are related to the student’s welfare. The living of students, eating and the comprehensive welfare are social policy. In addition, social policy activities include collaborating with student health care services, student counsellors, the student welfare adviser, the school psychologist and the school chaplain to ensure the well-being of all students.
