Main content

The University Board has overriding responsibility for the students’ learning environment.

The Learning Environment Committee is the advisory body to the University Board.  The Board shall, in cooperation with the Student Welfare Organisation (SiB), take steps to facilitate a good learning environment and work to improve student welfare at the place of study, among other things by providing various services and facilities.


The students themselves play a key role in the development of their own learning environment. Every student can contribute to a better learning environment, but formally this work is done by student representatives elected from the student body.
