Sahlgrenska Academy Student Union is the organisation for those who study at Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg. We are run by students, for students. We are the student organization that can influence all levels within the university and nationally through our cooperation with national organizations. We represent you and your opinions so that you get the best possible education!

THE STUDENT UNION IS ON YOUR SIDE IF YOU ARE UNFAIRLY TREATED
THE STUDENT UNION EXISTS TO IMPROVE YOUR EDUCATION
THE STUDENT UNION IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO MEET OTHERS
Our education is our working environment. If you experience unfair treatment, sexual harassment, if the university does not comply with laws or regulations, or if you are discriminated against in any way, the student union is on your side. Whether you are a member or not, you can always turn to elected representatives in the union for help.
Along with other student unions, we have student and doctoral representatives who are independent from the university. The ombudsmen have a duty of confidentiality and you choose whether you want to pursue the matter further while also receiving advice.
As a student you are a partner in your education. With the union, you have the right to influence your education. When students are given space and take advantage of their influence, education becomes better.
Noone has time to do everything, but everyone can do something, such as to respond to the course surveys. You can also get involved as a programme representative in your education council and take on assignments as a student representative in various bodies within the university.
SAKS represents all students at the Sahlgrenska Academy. You as a member support our work and can get involved to address what you think is especially important.
What is university without a social life? Our committees and corps organize a wide range of social activities for our members – lunch lectures, workouts, gaming, pub evenings, parties and banquets. We believe that those who have friends in other students have a better chance to succeed in their studies.
Take the opportunity to enjoy your study time and get to know students from your own and other programs! Come in and ask us about events at our office, look out for posters on the boards, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Most of our social activities take place at our union house, Hvilla Medici.
