The Student Union, or Student Kåren is a central part of university life in Sweden. There is a long history of student politics and the union has the ability to influence in the school environment and in other areas of life. They provide a variety of valuable services for students, both socially and professionally.
The union's primary goal is to influence student
politics. They work to help you get what you
want and need at university. This may be by setting demands for
certain courses, or offering advice about educational problems.
They also open up a whole world of contacts for your future working
lives; with conferences and business presentation
There is also the social side to Students Kåren's work. When new students come to the university they all face the same problem - finding friends! Student Kåren ensures that all new students are assigned a fadder, and that new International Students are introduced to the International Committee. The pub and restaurant is a great way to help newcomers feel at home, meet new people and become an active part of student life.
However, the best part of being a member of the student union is that you receive your Swedish Student Union card. Unlike the MDH student card, this one is your key to money saving offers. Not only do you get reduced prices when taking part in International Committee events you also get reduced prices at Kåren.
But it is not just at the university that you will can reap the benifits. Once you have your card you can also buy student price train tickets, entry in many of the town's night clubs, and cinema tickets, plus much much more!
International Students also recive a
free simcard when they pay the student union fee
It costs just 200sek to join the student union for a whole term. By joining you are giving yourself the benifit of recieving great student offers, as well as supporting the people who are supporting you during your time here at Mälardarlens Högskola.
You can pay your union fee at the service desks in both Västerås and Eskilstuna's Kår houses, or through the website www.karen.nu
Eskilstuna on Tuesdays between 11:30 and 13:30
Västerås on Thursdays between 111:30 and 13:30.
