BERLIN — In a country once known for its lack of mobility for students and employees, more and more students are deciding to study abroad. The European Students’ Union, a lobbying organization for 45 student unions across Europe, said Friday that the German
figures were good news. (Published 23 January 2011)
The Swedish National Union of Students, SFS, is an association of student unions at the universities and university colleges in Sweden. SFS membership is voluntary.
SFS was founded in 1921. Today the organisation has 60 student union members, who in all represent 250 000 students of the total number of 385 000 students in Sweden. The purpose of SFS is twofold; to represent the interests of its members and, on a national level, supervise and spread the information about questions concerning education, science and student welfare issues.
SFS lobbies the Swedish Parliament, the Government, the political parties, the National Agency for Higher Education, the National Board of Student Aid and the National Admissions Office to Higher Education.
A great range of students unions are represented through SFS, from small student unions with approximately 30 student members to big ones consisting up to 35 000 students.
